Father Haynes Hubbard to hold service for Madeleine

Post by sallypelt on Tue 2 May 2017 - 21:12

Portuguese villagers have prayed for Madeleine McCann every Sunday since she disappeared 10 years ago, it has emerged.
The three-year-old vanished from a holiday apartment in the Algarve village at about 9pm on May 3, 2007.
A special church service will be held at the Church of Nossa Senhora da Luz, in holiday resort Praia de Luz, for all missing people, including Maddie, at 9pm on Wednesday.

is understood Father Haynes Hubbard, of Canada, the priest at the time of Maddie's disappearance, will be present at the service.
"There has been some sort of a service every year and it is always at about the same time that she went missing," a member of the church said.

There are also prayers for Maddie every Sunday. They take place every Sunday during the intercession.
"People have always asked that that continue and all the priests have been happy to do so."
Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, of Rothley, Leicestershire, have vowed to do "whatever it takes for as long as it takes" to find her.
Last week, British detectives working on the case revealed they are now pursuing a "significant" line of inquiry.

McCann case, 10 years after
Local residents described how the disappearance of Maddie, from apartment 5A on Rua Dr Agostinho da Silva, is now part of the village's history.
They recounted the minutes after the alarm was raised that the child was missing from the room where she was sleeping as her parents ate supper nearby.
Writer David S Jones, 72, said staff from the then-Mark Warner Ocean Club complex were at his restaurant, the Mirage, when news broke.
"Many of the workers for Mark Warner were gap-year students and were here," Mr Jones, the creator of Fireman Sam, said.

We closed the bar and everybody went out looking, it was about 10.30pm. We spent days looking for her."
A local businessman, who did not wish to be named, remembered seeing dozens of people comb the village for Maddie.
"It is something we will have to live with and we may never know what happened," he said. 

People here never forget - when you walk or drive around, you see reminders of what happened.
"I remember watching people searching the beach with torches from about 10.30pm. People were searching for days."

I bet Portuguese villagers blooming well haven't prayed for Madeleine McCann every Sunday since she disappeared 10 years ago - why would they?

The McCann effect caused havoc in the summer of 2007 which continued over weeks, months, years - nothing to do with Madeleine herself but the circus created by her parents and their machine.  The locals gave their time and support during the critical period when the parents and their friends so drastically failed Madeleine - why would they wish to prolong the agony ten years down the line.  It takes time to rebuild the destruction created by the tragic case of a missing child, especially in a tranquil environment where serious crime is a rarety.

The McCann machine ruined the region of Praia da Luz, nothing can change that.  The locals want to forget and move on - not continue to re-live the tragedy.

Hubbard needs to be de-frocked and deported.  Harbouring the memory of a very serious crime is a criminal offence in itself.
