As you know the statue of Our Lady of Fatima came to Rome and returned to Fatima. I was in Rome the last time she arrived. Alas, because I am with a pilgrimage I just missed her this time.
However, it seems Benedict XVI had the opportunity to pay his respects.
In watching this, I am with the (irascible) Damian Thompson who put it well:
I know there aren’t two popes, but to see Benedict up close (and apparently thriving) is disorientating as well as delightful, don’t you think?
