The above text, which appears on a bronze commemorative plaque, was translated from Portugese by W. Maksimovich. Note that the monument was designed by a Brazilian architect, who also happens to be the mayor of Curitiba - the capital of PARANA State. The architect also happens to be a "chosen person", for this reason there is no cross on top of the replica of tserkva.
