saudade

these brass brazilian scapulars on 30"  sterling silver chain were blessed at our lady of pompeii shrine in the west village of manhattan and are available in 2 options:

- the virgin mary

- st. michael the guardian angel

 

the portuguese word saudade is like few others, in that it has no direct translation in english - and any attempt, in the heart of a native speaker, falls short of encapsulating the depth + complexity of its meaning. one effort claims that it is an emotional state of profound nostalgia, a longing for an absent something or someone that one loves; moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing may never return
