After all the fires that ravaged Portugal in the year 2017, there was one that personally touched me. The fire that partially destroyed a small village called Fajão, in Pampilhosa da Serra, north of Portugal. This is my grandmother's village, a place where I have been vacationing since I was a child, and until this year had been spared the immense fires that the inhabitants attribute to Our Lady of Guia, a Catholic invocation that is said to have protected the village several times. In what state will the village now be and how will the few inhabitants be? Why did faith fail this time?
