Lighting strikes the basilica of St. Peter’s dome earlier this evening during a storm that struck Rome on the same day Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, February 11, 2013.
And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had deceived all the world, was hurled down to earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, ‘Victory and power and empire for ever have been won by our G_d, and all authority for his Christ, now that the persecutor, who accused our brothers day and night before our G_d, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the witness of their martyrdom, because even in the face of death they would not cling to life. Let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, trouble is coming – because the devil has gone down to you in rage, knowing that his days are numbered.’
I watched Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
