Lightning strikes St. Peters Basilica hours after the Pope announced resignation

Was it just Mother Nature or a sign from God? Lightning appeared to strike St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City on Monday just hours after Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, according to the BBC. The lightning strike happened around 6 p.m. local time. Photo above.

AFP was the first to publish the startling photo of a lightning bolt coming out of the heavens and appearing to strike the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, one of Catholicism's holiest sites. AFP photographer Filippo Monteforte caught the amazing photograph during a storm.
"It was icy cold and the rain was falling in sheets," he told AFP. "When the storm started, I thought that lightning might strike the rod, so I decided it was worth seeing whether – if it DID strike – I could get the shot at exactly the right moment.”
He waited two hours before lightning struck twice and he captured a still image. “The first bolt was huge and lit up the sky, but unfortunately I missed it," he told AFP. "I had better luck the second time, and was able to snap a couple of images of the dome illuminated by the bolt.” (Huffington Post)

LIGHT, SOUND, RAINBOW: SIGNS OF COVENANT WITH GOD. AND THE PAPAL RESIGNATION.

Since the supreme Pontiff, the holy father the pope made up his mind to resign his papacy on the 28 of Feb, some gullible writers especially in Nigeria have taken to the Social Media to write and open their ears for scandals.

Everyone wants to hear if he resigned because of one pastoral scandal or the other yet there is non.
Then the bang comes. With his resignation, the media and those living near the Vatican claim they saw lighting coming down from heaven unto the St. Peter's Basilica.
Since then haters of the church, haters of Catholicism have taken to wrong, unfortunate and inappropriate interpretation of the sign.

As much as we applaud Cardinal Josef Ratzinger for such bold stand to resign due to poor health, we would also ask, which black president in the world would be brave to do that? Which modern day African leader would openly state his health has failed him.

Have we not seen the goings on in Venezuela with Hugo Chavez? Has he resigned even when he could not carry State functions? What about Fidel Castrol? Yasser Arafat? These would surely die in office even though Fidel Castro has partially relinquished power.

I wish to state it categorically clear that light, sound, rainbow represent God's covenant with a person. Most powerful calls are given through light and sound.
To state thus, the light seen over the Vatican means God is still with the church and God is still with the Catholic church and the gate of hell cannot prevail over the church.

Stop wasting your time interpreting what you don't know

Part one;
Theories are abounding now that the first pope in seven centuries is resigning his office. But as usual, finding the truth behind the world's oldest corporation is simply to follow the money: and specifically, Vatican Bank money.
First of all, let's put to rest, the fallacy that "looming scandals" about child rape and cover up are behind Joseph Ratzinger's resignation. That's just the cover story.
Nobody in the church hierarchy is losing sleep over their standing, canon-law endorsed policy of concealing and protecting child rapists in their ranks. Even the International Criminal Court application about such crimes has been stymied by catholic-run legislators and jurists.

What sounded the death knell on Pope Benedict was his personal involvement in the bribery and money-laundering practices of the Vatican Bank, comically known as The Institute of Religious Works (IOR). That dirty connection gave the anti-Ratzinger faction in the College of Cardinals the needed leverage to dump the obstinate German from the papal throne.

We had a whiff of that dump-Rat Boy agenda last year, when "Vatileaks" broke a ludicrous story of how Ratzinger's loyal butler Paolo Gabriele disclosed the pope's dirty secrets to the Italian media.

.

Anonymous said...

Part two;
In fact, the damning documents detailing Ratzinger's secret rewarding of Vatican contracts to his friends and family members originated in the Vatican Secretary of State's office, which the fall-guy butler could not have had access to.

The Secretary of State and the real power behind the papacy is Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, an old insider who also engineered the sacking of Gotti Tedeschi, head of the Vatican Bank, last May.

Tedeschi had embraced the call of the European Parliament for "greater transparency" by the Vatican Bank /IOR, and was about to disclose to Brussels how his bosses had been laundering money for the mob for decades. The last Pope who had tried such a disclosure, John Paul 1, died from poisoning in September, 1978 after less than a month in office.

But even with Tedeschi silenced, the IOR house of cards kept tumbling, as the European Parliament seized from it 300 million Euros fraudulently acquired. Even the American Securities and Exchange Commission declared the IOR's assets and practices "insecure". A major Vatican housecleaning was required; or at least, the appearance of one.

It was the pivotal Cardinal Bertone who leaked the pope's diary and other incriminating papers to a catholic-friendly journalist in Rome last year (the same month that Tedeschi was sacked,) to prepare the world for Ratzinger's removal. For it is Bertone who is now reaping the benefits of the papal housecleaning. He is not only a primary contender for the pope's position but a key player in the IOR.

During my second speaking tour in Rome, in the spring of 2010, I met with several senior Italian senators and officials of the parliamentary Radical Party. They all said the same thing about why Joseph Ratzinger had been made pope, and what awaited him. To quote one of these politicians,

"Nobody becomes pope without a sordid past, because only with such liabilities can he be controlled by the Curia. It's the same in any big company. Well, Ratzinger made many indiscretions as a Cardinal and made many enemies. His signing letters ordering criminal concealment was just one sin. He was to be the scapegoat for all of the trash that the church knew would surface"

Anonymous said...

Part three;
SCAPEGOAT

So now, the papal scapegoat is gone, pensioned off to wherever ex-popes end up; and the time for the big face-saving lie has arrived.

Putting lipstick on a decaying facade like the Church of Rome reminds me of Shirley MacLaine trying to look forty at the age of ninety. And yet appearances are everything in show business as well as in religion.

Tarcisio Bertone represents the old Italian crowd of the Curia, who are part of the Mob-government-papal clique that run the country and the Roman Catholic church. In the words of one of the Roman Senators I spoke with,

"You must understand that in my country, the Mafia and the government and the Vatican are all the same people, and they really have only one concern: protecting their assets."

Bertone, or whoever from the ranks of his victorious faction does assume the papal tiria, cannot be expected to do much but maintain the assets and security of the church, and that means continuing the policies of silence and dissimulation that keeps the cash flowing. But their position is more difficult now in the wake of the enormous rifts developing within the wider church, where Cardinals are facing criminal prosecution for shielding child rapists, and talk of disaffiliating from Rome is widespread among Irish, American and German Bishops.

"We have all the grounds for a second Reformation now. That's how serious is the crisis. The church will either rid itself of itself or face collapse" said an Italian media commentator recently.

It was easy to despise Joseph Ratzinger: the Hitler Youth-raised, reactionary bigot who sacked liberal and independent thinkers in his church as the Cardinal-head of the Vatican Inquisition, and who told American Bishops that purgatory awaited any of them who did not cover up priestly child rape. Even among fellow Cardinals, he was known as "Joe the Rat".

But Ratzinger was a made to order object-of-hatred, and put there to play out the oldest game in politics: the venting of popular rage on a disposable figurehead so that the institution itself could proceed unscathed.

I doubt that it's coincidental that Ratzinger was forced out of office so quickly barely ten days after our Common Law court published online hard evidence of the Pope's involvement in crimes against humanity. Any new Pope will face the same charges, of colluding in a massive criminal conspiracy.

But the real issue is not who or what will replace Joseph Ratzinger, but how to displace the Vatican itself as a criminal power unto itself. And that struggle is just commencing.

(BRUSSELS ITCCS ) - The historically unprecedented resignation of Joseph Ratzinger as Pope this week was compelled by an upcoming action by a European government to issue an arrest warrant against Ratzinger and a public lien against Vatican property and assets by Easter.

The ITCCS Central Office in Brussels is compelled by Pope Benedict's sudden abdication to disclose the following details:

On Friday, February 1, 2013, on the basis of evidence supplied by our affiliated Common Law Court of Justice (itccs.org), our Office concluded an agreement with representatives of a European nation and its courts to secure an arrest warrant against Joseph Ratzinger, aka Pope Benedict, for crimes against humanity and ordering a criminal conspiracy.
This arrest warrant was to be delivered to the office of the "Holy See" in Rome on Friday, February 15, 2013. It allowed the nation in question to detain Ratzinger as a suspect in a crime if he entered its sovereign territory.
A diplomatic note was issued by the said nation's government to the Vatican's Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, on Monday, February 4, 2013, informing Bertone of the impending arrest warrant and inviting his office to comply. No reply to this note was received from Cardinal Bertone or his office; but six days later, Pope Benedict resigned.
The agreement between our Tribunal and the said nation included a second provision to issue a commercial lien through that nation's courts against the property and wealth of the Roman Catholic church commencing on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013. This lien was to be accompanied by a public and global "Easter Reclamation Campaign" whereby Catholic church property was to be occupied and claimed by citizens as public assets forfeited under international law and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
It is the decision of our Tribunal and the said nation's government to proceed with the arrest of Joseph Ratzinger upon his vacating the office of the Roman Pontiff on a charge of crimes against humanity and criminal conspiracy.

Anonymous said...

It is our further decision to proceed as well with the indictment and arrest of Joseph Ratzinger's successor as Pope on the same charges; and to enforce the commercial lien and "Easter Reclamation Campaign" against the Roman Catholic church, as planned.
In closing, our Tribunal acknowledges that Pope Benedict's complicity in criminal activities of the Vatican Bank (IOR) was compelling his eventual dismissal by the highest officials of the Vatican. But according to our sources, Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone forced Joseph Ratzinger's resignation immediately, and in direct response to the diplomatic note concerning the arrest warrant that was issued to him by the said nation's government on February 4, 2013.

We call upon all citizens and governments to assist our efforts to legally and directly disestablish the Vatican, Inc. and arrest its chief officers and clergy who are complicit in crimes against humanity and the ongoing criminal conspiracy to aid and protect child torture and trafficking.

Further bulletins on the events of the Easter Reclamation Campaign will be issued by our Office this week.

You instigate so many lies and yet, you do not even have the courage to state your name. COWARD!

If the Catholic Church isn't' true, how would it have stood the test of time. Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that pathetic haters like you would be in existence that's why he told St Peter (the first Pope by the way) that the gates of hell will not prevail against his church (Matt 16vs18).

Just like the was a Judas in the 12 deciples chosen by God the Son himself, there will always be wolf among sheep clothing and bad eggs among the priests and holy men of God. Surely, that does not remove the authenticity of the church and her role as a foremost pillar in the Christian faith. The devil can act through any one including the men of God if they succumb to him. Even our Lord Jesus Christ had to reprimand his rock St Peter by telling him to "Get behind me Satan"( Mark 8 vs 33) when he was telling the disciples about his passion and they wanted to discourage him from submitting to the will of God the father.

At the end of time, all men and women will face judgement before God. So do yourself a huge favour by ensuring that when that time comes, you will not be found wanting, rather than obnoxiously displaying your fantasies with books and movies where you get such fanciful ideas from.

A lot of churches have come and gone, some lasted only for as long as their founder lived for but the one true church has remained over centuries despite the attacks and accusations from haters like you. It's the Holy Spirit leading and guiding the Church so that the gates of hell has not and WILL NEVER prevail against it.
May God grant all who truly seek him, pure and sincere wisdom.

@Bala you can start by asking protestants to mind their business and allow Catholics live, must they spend their entire Christianity protesting. ALL man and him church abeg. What’s the meaning of all this nonsense and madness. If I can remember clearly many protestants have always believed that there is no power in the catholic church. And all of a sudden, they now believe in catholic saints @st. malachy. I thought that was an issue that was never to be considered in Protestantism. Oooooo so catholic saints now see versions? I thought Catholics are precluded from seeing versions? I thought the words of catholic saints are mere opinions so long as Protestants are concern? Please you people should keep to your multiple churches and give us the space of our one church. In summary ‘CAN WE LIVE?’ besides you people can make heaven without talking about Catholics, joor.
