The Dance At Fatima

Over 3500 troops from the Portuguese National Republican Guard stood guard outside Portugal’s famous Fatima Catholic Shrine to prevent any pilgrims from entering the shrine.

The troops had been dispatched there yesterday morning on the orders of the Portuguese government and would be removed after tomorrow.

The heavy handed military manoeuvre was designed to prevent pilgrims from marking the 103rd anniversary of the 1st appearance (one of 6 over the next 6 months) of the Blessed Virgin Mary to 3 shepherd children near the village of Fatima.

There was really no need for the military overreach action (save possibly in the minds of James Lovelock’s Gaia Hypothesis followers who consider this modern form of pantheism as pure undefiled empirical climate change science).

However it was done.

And now 2 members of the Portuguese National Republican Guard guarding the shrine started a conversation with one another.

“Say, did you hear 2 minor earthquakes struck Israel yesterday morning only one hour apart from the other in different parts of the country?” One soldier remarked to the other.

“No, I didn’t hear that,” the other soldier answered.

“Then exactly one half hour between the two Israeli earthquakes, another minor earthquake struck and hit and shook Vatican City State,” the 1st soldier commented.

“Wow, that is peculiar,” the 2nd soldier remarked.

“Kind of apocalyptic when one thinks about it,” the 1st soldier bit his lip and looked down as a ghostly white translucent very small baby turtle shapeshifted into a somewhat large ghostly white translucent iguana.

“Did I ever show you my photos of the time I visited the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland last year?” The 2nd soldier inquired.

“No, you didn’t,” the 1st soldier replied.

The 2nd soldier brought out his smart phone and then in total violation of WHO social distancing guidelines showed the 1st soldier the photos.

“Who’s that a statue of?” The 1st soldier pointed.

“That’s a statue of the god Shiva in his role of Lord of the Dance (not to be confused with Irish dancer Michael Flatley’s Lord of The Dance) also known as Shiva Nataraja or Shiva the Nataraj and symbolizes Shakti or the Life Force,” the 2nd soldier explained.

The 1st soldier suddenly looked over in the direction of the outdoor chapel of the Fatima shrine.

“Say, isn’t that Shiva himself standing in the chapel?” The 1st soldier pointed.

The 2nd soldier gazed through his binoculars, “Egad! You’re right! What’s he doing here? And are immortals allowed within the premises? Or are they barred along with everyone else because of the pandemic?”.

“I have no idea,” the 1st soldier shrugged, “You better call headquarters for instructions.”

There was no answer at headquarters as they had all been struck down by food poisoning from following and preparing a recipe for spinach salad that Bryan Adams had posted on his Instagram account.
