I read a quote on another source:
Archbishop Comastri said part of the restoration project includes putting up a new lightning rod "since a lot of lightning bolts hit the basilica."
What more is there to say? The dome has a lightning rod on it, it attracts lightning bolts. I would have been gratefully impressed if a spontaneous fireworks display went off all over Italy for finally getting rid of this paedophile protector.
