Papa Luciani was the Meteor; Papa Ratzinger the Lightening Bolt?

┬áThe evening of the announcement that Pope Benedict would resign on February 28, a lightening bolt struck the cupola of St. Peter’s Basilica.

Made me think of how Pope John Paul I was described as a meteor in the night, that dazzled us with his presence but quickly vanished from our sight. Will Pope Benedict be described as a lightening bolt from heaven?

We do believe, right, that God reveals himself through the lives of men, and even in creation? Perhaps we have caught a glimpse of God in the lives of these two men, in the image of a meteor and that of lightening.
