This, i.e., the Centennial, was why Pope Francis was in Fatima to canonize the two younger cousins who died in 1918. Click image to access “The New York Times” original.

100-years ago today!

Our Lady of Fatima‘ has figured prominently in World history and culture since then — especially in the last 30-years, with all three of the popes during that period being avid fans.

Today’s canonization was timed to coincide with the anniversary. Neat.

The reason that only two, of the three, were canonized was because Lúcia Santos, the oldest, did not die until 2005 — aged 97. The canonization process can’t start until you die! Hence the delay. Her canonization has been fast-tracked — as was the case for Pope John Paul II, a huge Fatima fan. She will be canonized in a ‘few’ years.

Looks interesting, but at $85/person would seem a tad pricey — given that it is not ‘help yourself‘.

I will have to look into this ‘Native New Year’ claim. Never heard of it. May 27 would seem late in the year for a New Year — especially in North America.

I will keep you posted.

Looks interesting.

This is the ‘First in the NationDixville Notch which always gets its 15-minutes of glory whenever we have a State Primary or a National Election.

It is UP THERE, way up there. I have never been that far north within New Hampshire! They might still have snow up there.

First Annual. So, it is the first. As such I can’t say I have ever been to it.

Thinking about it. Just wanted to make sure you knew about it.

Many of you, especially anyone whose life has been impacted or touched by Fibromyalgiawill find this article with its 20-picture essays interesting.

Nothing new or profound in terms of the condition, just a chronicling of the symptoms and their effects on people and their lives.

A lot is happening, rather quickly, at present, in terms of trying to redefine Fibromyalgia and finally get a good handle on it so that better treatment options could be made available. I have covered some of these in my new ‘Central Pain Syndrome: Chronic, Confounding Pain Such As That Of Fibromyalgia‘ book.
