Sign to Church - Lightning Strikes St. Peter's Basilica

I wonder if anyone will see this as a clear sign that they should of recognized and did not, and only when it is pointed out, do they even think trice .... 

Though this reminds me of a dream I had back when I was going through an annulment with the Church, (2006/07) as I was the front right Pallbearer carrying the Popes casket out of the doorway and down some steps..

Act of God? Lightning Strikes St. Peter's After Pope Announces Resignation

Monday's (Feb. 11) surprising announcement by Pope Benedict XVIthat he was resigning from the papacy struck some observers like a bolt out of the blue.
And a few hours later, an actual bolt of lightning struck St. Peter's Basilica, the centerpiece of the Vatican and one of the holiest sites in Christendom, NBC News reported.
Was the lightning strike, coming just hours after Pope Benedict's announcement, evidence of God's wrath, or some ominous sign from above? Perhaps, but it was more likely the natural result of a rainstorm that was passing over Rome at the time...
Secular objects are also often struck by lightning. Airplanes are struck by lightning frequently, and the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and other tall buildings have all been hit.
St. Peter's Basilica is the tallest dome in the world at 448 feet (137 meters) from the floor to the cross that was added to the very top by Pope Clement VIII in the 16th century. A lightning rod points skyward from the top of that cross — it's likely that this is what was struck by lightning Monday.

    From the Dream Dictionary about seeing "Lightning"
To see lightning in your dream signifies sudden awareness, insight, spiritual revelation, truth and purification. Alternatively, lightning implies a shocking turn of events. There are many forces governing your life that may be beyond your control and even destructive.

To dream that you are struck by lightning symbolizes irreversible changes occurring in your life. You are undergoing a permanent transformation

Watch Lightning Strike St. Peter’s Basilica Shortly After the Pope’s Resignation

Mere hours after Pope Benedict XVI became the first pontiff in nearly six centuries to resign his post, the dome of St. Peter's Basilica — the earthly resting place of the Church's first Pope — was lit up by a dramatic lightning strike.
Alessandro Di Meo, one of two photographers who captured the ominous event on camera, told the BBC he was met with much skepticism after his photo went public.
"I understand that the picture may be incredible," he said. "Photos of lightning have always been done, but the only difference, in this case, is that it is the right place and at the right time."
But the cries of "fake" persisted, until video footage of the lightning strike finally emerged (see below).
