"O pai explica que ele está vivo."

Translation:The father explains that he is alive.

thanks for the explanation dad...


If you drop the 'O' does the sentence become 'Father explains ...' as if one's own father?


The English translation for this sentence could be an observation that: a priest (the father) explains that Christ (He) is alive. It is hard for me to imagine a case where a native English speaker would refer to his or her own father as "the father" in a sentence of this kind.
