Madeleine – 10th – #1

Please examine the photograph very carefully.  It contains soooooo much.

The date is 3 May 2017.  The time is 25 to 9, check the church clock.  The media are covering the St Vincent’s service for the 10th anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance.

The tourists are walking past, bemused.

  1. First of all I notice the absence of Gerry and Kate McCann in the photo, then their famous spokesman and most of all the Pope himself, who blessed them 10 years ago.

    By the way, wasn’t it in the very same church they celebrated Madeleine’s 4th birthday and to which they had free access after Madeleine had gone missing.

    Considering that St Vincent is the “Great Apostle of Charity” in the catholic anglican church, one would have expected, and also appreciated very much indeed, if at least some of all those people who have fed the Madeleine Fund all those years, with their own money, had gathered at this place in memory of Madeleine and in the hope of her being found some day. One would also have expected that Kate had taken some of her Missing People friends to PDL, with the intention of making people aware of how many children there still are, who go missing every year.

    It seems as if the habitants of PDL aren’t so interested in being reminded about Madeleine and Gerry and Kate don’t seem to care too much about reminding them.

    Interesting photo of which there could be said so much more.

  2. There wasn’t anything on the church notice board about such a service. Perhaps the people who attended got a heads-up at a previous service or perhaps it went on the church web-site.

    I only found out about it on a web forum I use.

    I have no idea what, if anything, happened around apartment 5A re media on 3 May 2017. I could only be in 1 place at 1 time, and I thought the church service was more important than the Tapas zone.

    It looks like the media made the same decision.

    With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had taken a snap or two of the passers-by, who were looking on in bewilderment.
