Big Money in Fátima: Coincidence or Hand of God?

There’s a new millionaire in Portugal, just 3 days before the celebration of May 13th, the commemoration of the first apparition. In a café near the Fátima Shrine, a customer made a bet in Euromilhões – the European Lottery - which earned him 73 million euros.

According to the Santa Casa da Misericórdia – the official regulator of the contest in the country - this is the 60th time that Portugal takes the first prize, in a total of 334 awards to date. The question remains… was this pure luck in a good timing or the work of God?
