Day 20 - 23/05/2007 Wednesday
23 May 2007
Today Kate and I went to the Shrine at
Fatima to pray for Madeleine´s safe return.
It was another early start leaving at 6.30am. MarkWarner, who have looked after
us so well, laid on a car and driver. We managed to continue the campaign with
telephone conversations and e-mails. The actual visit was very encouraging with
the rector and thousands of pilgrims praying for Madeleine as well Kate and I.
We lit candles for Madeleine and also 3 for Madeleine’s grandparents. The trip
received a lot of publicity
which should help maintain the profile of her abduction.We are planning a relatively quiet day tomoorow although the British Ambaasador is coming to visit and we need to start finalising our plans for interviews in areas of
Europe where the coverage of
Madeleine’s disappaerance has been limited.
