Lightning Blasts Papal Key from Hand of Statue

Act of God! Lightning blasted the keys and blessing hand of a statue of St. Peter in Argentina on December 17, Pope Francis’ birthday and the day before the publication of the Vatican document Fiducia Supplicans endorsing homosexual “blessings.”

The Lepanto Institute reported on Sunday that it sent an unnamed individual to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary of San Nicolás, north of Buenos Aires, where the statue flanks the shrine, to take pictures and confirm the lightning strike originally reported on December 26 by Italian blogger Andrea Cionci.
