Inscription(s)

nesta casa viveu
FRANCISCO DE JESUS MENDES
nascido em 6-viii-911 e
falecido em 7-viii-959
tal como jesus fez,
passou pela terra
fazendo bem:
- no amor aos pobres,
- na salvação das almas,
assim expressou o sou forte dinamismo:
"DEIXEM-ME PARTIR, QUE AINDA TENHO
MUITO QUE ANDAR" (foram as suas útimas
palavras).

In this house lived
FRANCISCO DE JESUS MENDES
born on 6 July 1911 and
deceased on 7 July 1959
just as Jesus did,
passed through the land
doing well:
- in love for the poor,
- in the salvation of souls,
so expressed the strong dynamism:
"LET ME GO, WHAT I STILL HAVE
MUCH TO WALK" (were his last
words).
