lightning strikes vatican*The Catholic community was rocked with news of the Pope’s resignation Monday, but there is still no sign of a successor.

But of the 116 cardinals that are up for the job, there is supposed to be a very good chance that the next Pope will come from Latin America or Africa.

But then, just when we thought that only the Catholic faith was turned upside down by the news, the Vatican was struck by lightning!

According to Headline News, it was just hours after the Pope made his decision and notified the church.
