As omens go, is this good or bad?

Yesterday afternoon Pope Benedict VI resigned, saying that he was suffering from ill-health and could not continue in his role as leader of the church. This announcement was met with shock, confusion, and a dash of compassion by most people. There is someone else’s viewpoint that demands to be heard, though. Did this Very Important Person make their feelings clear when lightning struck the cross on the top of St Peter’s last night?

Perhaps I’m just being a bit superstitious.
