Lightning damages Jesus statue
A bolt broke off an arm and a hand and damaged a foot at the Mother Cabrini Shrine in Golden. The sisters hope the 22-foot piece can be repaired.

The statue, damaged Saturday, was sent from Italy in sections in 1954. No one was hurt by the falling pieces.

Don’t look for any religious symbolism here - it was only a freak act of Mother Nature, says Sister Ilaria.

The lightning bolt broke off one of Jesus’ arms and a hand and damaged one of his feet, sending marble plummeting to the ground during a Saturday afternoon storm. ...

Uh huh, no religious symbolism at all. Nothing to look at here, move along.

And what pray tell, would they make out of that by way of religious symbolism?  It was just a ceremic statue that got hit by lightening.  I’m confused as to how they could get anything out of that.  1.gif

30% of the people who voted in the poll thought there was evidence of religious symbolism. LOL Must be evidence of the apocolypse.

I also enjoyed the news story a few weeks ago after the tornado that devastated a town in Arkansas.

All nine churches in the town were all completely destroyed, but the local bar was only slightly damaged.
