Lightning Strikes St. Peter Statue on Pope Francis’ Birthday, Internet Lights Up

CV NEWS FEED // Before the end of 2023, the Internet was abuzz with rumors, later confirmed, that lightning struck a statue of St. Peter on Pope Francis’ birthday, December 17. The news was first reported in Italian on December 26 by Andrea Cionci, an Italian Catholic blogger who questions the legitimacy of Francis as a successor of St. Peter. The rumor made its way into the Spanish Catholic blogosphere and was quickly translated into English by the “Pope Head” Substack: On Sunday December 17, 2023, lightning literally pulverized the key and halo of the statue of Saint Peter, located on the facade of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary of San Nicolas, north of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The story was “reported by the Telegram channel ‘The Pope’s Pearls,’” Cionci wrote. The report “seemed to be fake, given that no news could be found on the web,” he added, “but the event has just been confirmed by the Reverend Father Justo Lofeudo, a priest who is certainly a Bergoglian.” “Father Lofeudo certainly did not realize the effect that the disclosure of the photo would have,” Cionci continued: 

What is striking, in fact, is that the event occurred on Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s birthday, the day before the publication of the Fiducia supplicans declaration which opens up blessings for gay couples. 

Catholic author Taylor Marshall highlighted the story on his YouTube Channel, commenting that the lightning not only happened during Francis’ birthday and one day before the publication of the controversial document Fiducia Supplicans, “but is also in his home diocese: Bergoglio was Archbishop and Cardinal of Buenos Aires.” On December 30, Catholic commentator Steven O’Reilly revealed on his X (formerly Twitter) account that after contacting the Shrine in San Nicolás with a confirmation request in Spanish “the unsigned reply (from the Shrine) did not confirm or deny the facts, which is all that I requested.” “Instead the reply said only (translated): ‘The interpretation of the facts that circulate through these media is not real, which is why the Sanctuary does not endorse or agree with them,’” O’Reilly reported. On December 31, also on X, the Lepanto Institute reported: Some people are questioning the veracity of the claims that a statue of St. Peter in Argentina was struck by lightning on Dec. 17, pulverizing the halo, key, and blessing hand. The Lepanto Institute sent someone to the location to take pictures and confirm the events. The Dec. 17 lightning strike is CONFIRMED and here are additional pictures of the statue. NOTE: The lightning struck the statue, despite there being lightning rods some 30-40 feet above it (second and third picture). 

CatholicVote’s investigation 
  • CV was also able to send a local journalist to the Shrine of San Nicolás and can clarify some facts: The lightning indeed struck the image of St. Peter at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary of St. Nicolás, obliterating both the iron halo and keys in the statue’s right hand. The image of St. Peter is not located in the main entrance, but on the left side of the shrine, flanking a side entrance, with St. Paul on the other side of the same door. The image of St. Paul, whose sword is also iron, was not affected. 
  • The lightning indeed struck on December 17, Pope Francis’ 87th birthday. 
  • The City of San Nicolás is prone to lightning. In fact, it was after a lightning strike at the site of the Marian shrine that the faithful began building it in 1987 under the instructions of the Marian visionary Gladys Quiroga de Motta. 
  • As the Lepanto Institute stated, the shrine has plenty of lightning rods, thus the strike on St. Peter’s statue was highly improbable. 
  • Fr. Justo Antonio Lofeudo, incorrectly described by Andrea Cionci as a “Bergoglian” priest, is the founder of the Missionaries of the Holy Eucharist, a congregation dedicated to promoting perpetual adoration around the world. 
  • Speaking to CV, Lofeudo strongly denied taking or distributing the first pictures of the damaged statue going around the Internet, some of them with the footnote “courtesy of Fr. Justo Lofeudo.” On the evening of December 31, Lofeudo closed his daily homily on his Youtube channel confirming that the event was real, but denied being the source of any circulating photos. 
  • The Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary of San Nicolás is not in the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, as claimed by Marshall. Although located in the province of Buenos Aires, San Nicolás is a diocese located 150 miles north of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, and only 40 miles south of the Archdiocese of Rosario, the seat of San Nicolás’ ecclesiastical province. 
  • The Shrine has indeed refused to comment on or even acknowledge the strange episode. Neither on its official website nor on its Facebook or Instagram accounts, last updated on January 1, 2024, is there any mention of the event. A spokesperson for the shrine told CV that since January 1 is a holiday and a day obligation, there was no one available to comment. 
  • CV has confirmed that the lightning episode has sparked concern and speculation in San Nicolás and Buenos Aires, especially since the shrine was turning 40 years old and many thought of 2023 as an emblematic year.

"A forerunner of the Antichrist, with his troops drawn from many nations, will wage war against the true Christ, sole Savior of the world; he will shed much blood and will seek to annihilate the cult of God so as to be regarded as a god." Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

OK I've roped them in. I was the only blogger talking about Evil Portents and Omens (Since 2003). My reasoning on Evil Portents and Omens came from History - Roman and Church History. So I could never understand why Rad Trad Influencers were always poo pooing my analysis claiming it was superstitious etc...  That was until lightning stuck St Peter's on 13 Feb. 2013. Then everything changed. Now ALL Rad Trad Influencers are interested in Evil Portents and Omens. They are always looking for signs.

I made them look.

So here goes. Will These same Rad Trads look for signs and portents and omens surrounding Alexander Tschugguel - the Foreurnner to the Antichrist?

The answer is no. Because they will follow the Foreurnner to the Antichrist. So Rad Trads will look the other way and will hide anything to do with evil portents and omens surrounding the Forerunner.

Too late. I already noticed strange events surrounding the activities of the Forerunner. I used his Twitter account to see where the Forerunner was going to and then I would wait for bad signs upon his arrival etc.  The Forerunner was wise to my analysis and the Forerunner no longer Tweets his going about. So too with his followers they will notice where the Forerunner goes but will be silent on the evil portents and omens that follow him.

That's just a few of the posts..

This one I like the most..


"I didn't see, I don't see any Great Pope or Great Monarch before an extremely great tribulation, horrifying, terrible and general for all Christendom. But before that time, twice there will be a short lived peace; TWO shaky, servile, doubtful popes" Mélanie


God will abandon mankind to itself and will send punishments which will follow one after the other for more than thirty-five years. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)


“Evil books will be abundant on earth and the spirits of darkness will spread everywhere a universal slackening of all that concerns the service of God. They will have great power over Nature: there will be churches built to serve these spirits. People will be transported from one place to another by these evil spirits, even priests, for they will not have been guided by the good spirit of the Gospel which is a spirit of humility, charity and zeal for the glory of God. On occasions, the dead and the righteous will be brought back to life. (That is to say that these dead will take on the form of righteous souls which had lived on earth, in order to lead men further astray; these so-called resurrected dead, who will be nothing but the devil in this form, will preach another Gospel contrary to that of the true Christ Jesus, denying the existence of Heaven; that is also to say, the souls of the damned. All these souls will appear as if fixed to their bodies) Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)



“May the curate of my Son, Pope Pius IX never leave Rome again after 1859; may he, however, be steadfast and noble, may he fight with the weapons of faith and love. I will be at his side. May he be on his guard against Napoleon: he is two-faced, and when he wishes to make himself Pope as well as Emperor, God will soon draw back from him. He is the master-mind who, always wanting to ascend further, will fall on the sword he wished to use to force his people to be raised up. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)



Many convents are no longer houses of God, but the grazing-grounds of Asmodeas and his like. It will be during this time that the Antichrist will be born of a Hebrew nun, a false virgin who will communicate with the old serpent, the master of impurity, his father will be B. At birth, he will spew out blasphemy; he will have teeth, in a word; he will be the devil incarnate. He will scream horribly, he will perform wonders; he will feed on nothing but impurity. He will have brothers who, although not devils incarnate like him, will be children of evil. At the age of twelve, they will draw attention upon themselves by the gallant victories they will have won; soon they will each lead armies, aided by the legions of hell. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)


"During the time of the approach of the punishments announced at La Salette,an unlimited amount of false revelations will arise from hell like a swarm of flies; a last attempt of Satan to choke and destroy the belief in the true revelations by false ones."

“The great chastisement will come, because men will not be converted; yet it is only their conversion that can hinder these scourges. God will begin to strike men by inflicting lighter punishments in order to open their eyes; then He will stop, or may repeat His former warnings to give place for repentance. But sinners will not avail themselves of these opportunities; He will, in consequence, send more severe castigations, anxious to move sinners to repentance, but all in vain. Finally, the obduracy of sinners shall draw upon their heads the greatest and most terrible calamities. Mélanie

“We are all guilty! Penance is not done, and sin increases daily. Those who should come forward to do good are retained by fear. Evil is great. A moderate punishment serves only to irritate the spirits, because they view all things with human eyes. God could work a miracle to convert and change the aspect of the earth without chastisement. God will work a miracle; it will be a stroke of His mercy; but after the wicked shall have inebriated themselves with blood, the scourge shall arrive Mélanie

“What countries shall be preserved from such calamities? Where shall we go for refuge? I, in my turn, shall ask, What is the country that observes the commandments of God? What country is not influenced by human fear where the interest of the Church and the glory of God are at stake? (Ah, indeed! What country, what nation upon earth?) In behalf of my Superior and myself, I have often asked myself where we could go for refuge, had we the means for the journey and for our subsistence, on condition that no person were to know it? But I renounce these useless thoughts. We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is necessary that a very great and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Mélanie

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
