Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote challenge this week is the word “Intangible”.
incapable of being perceived by the senses
“Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious.” Albert Einstein
Fatima is a village in Portugal. It is a civil parish in the municipality of Ourém, in the Portuguese Centro region. With a population of 11,538 inhabitants in 2011, the parish actually encompasses several villages and localities … Wikipedia
It is most famous for the annual pilgrimage to the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Today pilgrimage to the site goes on all year round and additional chapels, hospitals and other facilities have been constructed. The principal pilgrimage festivals take place on the thirteenth day of each month, from May to October, on the anniversaries of the original appearances. The largest crowds gather on 13 May and 13 October, when up to a million pilgrims have attended to pray and witness processions of the statue of Our Lady of Fátima, both during the day and by the light of tens of thousands of candles at night.
Really interesting and original take on the prompt, Danny! I remember we really wanted to go to Fatima when were in Portugal but schedule just turned out differently. One of those…currently intangible plans of mine for future 🙂
Thanks for the comment! Wonderful place to visit. I remember just being overwhelmed while we were there.
