This was the dramatic scene as the world’s largest statue of Jesus was hit by lightning.
The bolt parted the thunderclouds over Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to strike Christ the Redeemer.
The statue is 130ft tall, is made of 700 tons of reinforced concrete and stands atop the 2,296ft Corcovado mountain overlooking the city.
One commenter on that site writes:
It means Jesus has come back! He was obviously born at the exact moment the lightning hit the statue. He was born in the slum of Rio. Brazil is the world’s largest Catholic country. Finally, he’s back! Out of the slums he will rise to perform miracles among the poor and hopeless. Amen!
OR, maybe it’s just because lightning tends to strike the tallest object in a given area. Either way, my rosaries are on overdrive
