THE POPE VISITING FATIMA, PORTUGAL? but why? and so what??

An 85-foot-tall glow-in-the-dark rosary — constructed by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos outside Fatima’s Holy Trinity Basilica — glowing for the first time with the Pope reciting Rosary prayers for gathered pilgrims….
The Pope in Portugal — honouring the 100th anniversary of the first of several appearances of the Virgin Mary to three shepherd children at Fátima, Portugal, in 1917….
During 100 years since the apparitions, multiple conspiracy-theories springing up — particularly over the wording of the “Third Mystery” received by the children from an angel in July 1917….
NOT in dispute is that ‘pointing to the earth with his right hand, the angel cried out, “Penance, Penance, Penance!”’
Perhaps a message that Christians should be regularly going to confession – the Sacrament of Penance – confessing one’s sins to the priest and receiving absolution for those sins….
There seems little doubt we’re being reminded to do exactly that.
Are we going to?
