Chapter 22 – Pray for us sinners

Following the excellent and well-knitted campaign that promoted two key notions on a worldwide basis, “Maddie disappeared” and “Maddie was abducted”, British diplomacy, which had opened so many doors for the McCann all across the world, ultimately proved several things, including that those who hold the power to influence are closer to the divine graces, while those who do not hold it, must insist in prayers.

It was that same power to influence, politically and in the media, that took Madeleine’s parents to the Vatican, where they attended a public ceremony sitting in the front row, and two or three minutes of the attention of Benedict XVI were conceded to them. The way that this meeting was reported all over the world, lead the public to believe that these were powerful people who had access to everything and everyone.

That was not the way it happened in Berlin, where they wanted to meet the President of the German Government, Angela Merkel, but had to do with the Mayor of Berlin. That was not the way it happened in the United States, where the British machine wanted the McCanns to be received at the highest level, and ended up being met by a member of staff from the cabinet of the First Lady, Laura Bush. It was not the way it happened in Spain, where instead of Zapatero or a member of the Royal Family, they were received by the Minister for Internal Affairs.

It could not be any other way. How would the heads of the states that the McCanns wanted to visit, explain this to their own citizens, while the parents of equally missing children never had been given the opportunity to present their cases to those that govern them?

Diplomacy tells us to treat our allies well, but not to the point of compromising heads of state with issues that are not solved yet.

The information services of each one of those states also counseled their leaders to prudently stay away from that matter. The ones at the Vatican are actually the best in the world.

Benedict XVI was the high point of a campaign that had started much earlier, with the visible and well publicized visits at the church in Luz, constantly appealing to religion and to God. The visit to the Vatican represented a conquest for those that were coordinating the pro-McCann campaign; yet, nothing could be done when that State decided to redraw all references to Madeleine from their official site, a clear message that they wanted to distance themselves from the case.

What led to this happening only days before the first lab test results were revealed? Coincidences? Surely not!

We all sin and the Vatican takes that for granted. But did the advisors to Benedict XVI not rush themselves, when they wanted to associate the papal figure to the events that were taking place in Portugal? Didn’t they, initially, step aboard the wave of pity and sympathy towards the McCanns’ pain? Didn’t it look good, in terms of religious policy towards a country like the United Kingdom, that the figure of the Pope became associated to what was the event of the year for Her Majesty’s subjects? Certainly yes.

From that small, yet influent state, strong winds blew when Rome received the news that the McCanns held a key to the church, which had been given to them by a parishioner from a group that was associated to the Church, bypassing the local priest. The clerical hierarchy fell upon the Portuguese church, which after being admonished, ended up blaming the poor priest, who had not contributed to the situation at all.

Those nightly prayers, even though “God is everywhere”, were seen by many as visits to the only location where the couple thought there were no wiretaps, thus being able to talk freely. In reality, although they believed they were being tapped, at home and on the phone, the fact was that they were not.
