Oscar Araripe / Tiradentes, o Animoso Alferes / Inauguração / Museu Antônio Perdigão

“Na escola, Tiradentes me foi o herói brasileiro, o mais simpático e o que mais se parecia com Jesus Cristo. Hoje, mesmo perdido da ingenuidade, não consigo imaginar nada melhor. É certo que grandes diferenças existem entre o céu e a terra - e que, tirante o amor ao próximo e o gosto pela Liberdade, a consciência da organização e do porvir, o sacrifício e o martírio, a inconteste liderança, a barba e os cabelos imaginários e mesmo a abjeta traição e a via-crúcis, tudo (e que não é tanto) os distancia.

 

Hoje, ambos, ganham dimensão mais humana. Estão mais próximos de nós. Sabiam com perfeição o que estavam fazendo – somos todos em Cristo e Tiradentes conspirou com Thomas Jefferson, o pai-fundador da nação americana, pelo Brasil independente e livre. A sorte, portanto, ajuda os audazes e os bons.

 

Tiradentes continua suscitando Jesus Cristo.

 

Creio que as crianças e o povo o vêem assim, de modo que assim o vejo eu.” – Oscar Araripe in catálogo da exposição “Tiradentes, o Animoso Alferes”, no Museu da Inconfidência, Ouro Preto, MG, em 1992.
