Only weeks away to May 3rd !........Dear Madeleine McCann
It seems amazing that it has been almost a year since little Madelein went missing. A small three year old from a Catholic family, who has simply disappeared without trace. There are interesting facts 'feeding' this mystery. Government help, the father as a High profile heart surgeon, but who also acted as a research scientist in the Netherlands in 2003, the year Madeleine was conceived, after five years of trying . It is distressing for the family to have aspects of the case debated and speculated on. The McCanns had an audience with Pope Benedict, who blessed her picture, and with many heads of state around the world. WhatCAN have been the motive for her abduction. It is clear her Mum and Dad are innocent of wrongdoing, I do not believe she is in the clutches of evil people. No trace of her has been found, but hundreds of 'sightings' most of them 'dead certs' and then another child's picture is produced to 'disprove'it-often with varying success-that is from people believing it. Lurid untrue headlines in some of the press? When have we ever known the like of it on this scale?
There are two main possibilities I think - close to the hearts of people evil enough to do this
1) REVENGE- for some slight, for something which was done before and for which someone felt injured.
2)HOSTAGE-for the pioneering research into DNA perhaps?For plain MONEY?
3)BLACKMAIL-for something to be kept secret, which someone does not want revealed?
I am sure the police are looking into all these angles to find little Maddy.G and K are busy doing work for other parents of Missing children, like poor little Yeremi Vargas, his mother walking around Madrid with home photocopied pictures of her little boy, begging people to take them. She wasn't given the help to find him, not even when she saw him in some child porn films.Why can't governments get a grip on this? It is just too awful to think of in a sorrowful broken world. We must really keep our eyes on the positive.No traces have been found, G and K believe she is alive and if there is a background motive, I hope it has been sorted out so that this little darling can come home to Mum and Dad.
If anyone would like to do this, there is a non denminational site where you may just light a candle for Madeleine and all missing children. This is above Left on the blog.
PRAYER FOR MADELEINE AND OTHER MISSING CHILDREN.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy and Immortal God
You said in the words of Christ : If anyone accepts these little ones in my name, he is welcoming me. But anyone who is the downfall of thses little ones, would be better drowned in the depths of the sea with a millstone around his neck.(St Matthew 18:5,6
Strengthen all those in suffering with the virtues of faith hope and Love and also with endurance.Support those who wait for news and protect the little ones who suffer and have suffered at their hands. You know what they have done.
Those who have left this earth and are with you, pray for their parents and families, and victims and families of all those who have died at the hands of those taken over by evil wrongdong.
In the name of the Holy Three-The Father, The Son and Holy Ghost.Amen
Holy Mary pray for us and them to the Lord Our God.
Saint Anthony, you who found so many things, find the missing children.Pray for us
This is my own personal comment on the Madeleine case, for perusal and in case anyone knows where she might be.
FROM THE PRESS ASSOCIATION TODAY
The Potuguese police will be interviewing the friends not Madeleine's parents>
'Press Assoc. Portuguese police are to visit the UK next week to re-interview the friends of Kate and Gerry McCann.
Officers are expected to arrive in Britain on April 7 but they will not interview the couple, whose four-year-old daughter Madeleine disappeared from the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz on May 3 last year.
Instead Portuguese detectives plan to sit in while officers from Leicestershire Constabulary interview their friends.
A spokeswoman for the British force said: "Leicestershire Constabulary will be coordinating the execution of the request for mutual legal assistance made by the Portuguese authorities.
"The Portuguese authorities have asked that the contents of the request and the way it is being executed be kept confidential so as not to prejudice their ongoing investigation."
It is almost 11 months since Madeleine disappeared from the holiday resort of Praia da Luz.
