Feb 13, 2013 – Lightning Strikes St. Peter’s Basilica As Pope Benedict XVI Resigns (Video)

On Monday the 11th of Feb, 2013 after Roman Catholic Pope Benedict XVI resigns from his office, we learnt lighting struck St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City.

According to eye witnesses of this wonder of nature, the lightning strikes around 6pm.

Also called the Papal Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican, St. Peter’s Basilica is a Late Renaissance church located within Vatican City. Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St Peter’s is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and remains one of the largest churches in the world. While it is neither the mother church of the Roman Catholic Church nor the cathedral of the Bishop of Rome, Saint Peter’s is regarded as one of the holiest Catholic sites. It has been described as “holding a unique position in the Christian world”and as “the greatest of all churches of Christendom”

On January 30, 2013, a seagull attacked a dove of peace released by Pope Benedict XVI from his window over St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican.

Still unsure if these occurrences are mere coincidence or portend something critical.

Watch the video below

What do you think caused the lighting?

    Like his predecesor, Pope Benedict is a good and pro life man.He is old, but didn’t Pope John Paul rule till at 85? I believe apart from his health, there is alot more we do not know. I will not go into this, but if you want to know more about where the world and our Catholic faith stands, then log on to http://www.ourladyoftheroses.com and you will learn alot about the messages and warnings from heaven. The anti pope according to the Virgin Mary will “bear the half moon sickle on his coat.” Accoring to St.Malachi, the last pope will be Petrus Romanus, who’ll sheperd his sheep but flee Rome due to it’s ills.The Blessed Mother has been insisting on all the faithful to pray for the church and all clergy because Satan has declared war to the church! Also, one of the secrets at FATIMA, was for Russia to be consecrated to the Immaculate heart of Mary. That has never been done! For how long now? So, please , pray for Pope Benedict for he well knows all that’s going on and some things which will come to pass. The Blessed Mother mentioned “the white bear” & how Pope John Paul II was always under attacks but had the full protection of heaven. We all must pray fervently for our dear church and the clergy. Pope Benedict i salute you and i pray God that all sinners come to full repentance. I put the next pope into your mighty hands Lord, for You alone know the truth because You are the Truth!

      @Monica, thanks forthis eye opening lecture. I’ll check the site now. God bless you.
      May the good Lord take control of His Church and never allow Satan to take control of His Church. Amen. O Lord, take control of the decision of the holy father, Pope Benedict XVI and let it be according to Your will. Already, gays and lesbians are rejoicing over this resignation hoping to have way in Catholic as they have in Anglican; but they’ll fail because You promised to be with Your church till the end of time.

      And for fellow Christians, brace up and be ready for Christ’s coming. The signs are everywhere. May God give Christians wings to fly with Christ Jesus on that D-Day. Amen.

    Really shocking news. Besides, it his decision is lesson to all leaders specifically political leaders who think ruling is to die on the hot sit.
    What kind of coincidence is that? God is watching us? Do not forget His reactions in the Old Testament. Lets pray for ourselves and the entire Catholic Church.
