The Catholic Church is rife with Symbolism. It has been a rather notable matter of contention between them and various other sects of the Christian tradition. A few recent news stories, if viewed as a whole, and from a Catholic perspective would seem to be sending a message.

From The Telegraph:

Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer struck by lightning
Iconic statue of Christ overlooking Rio de Janeiro sees right thumb damaged by lightning strike

IT does not really get much more wrath-of-god, than being struck by lightning, but then the thing is 98 feet tall, standing at 2,300 ft on top of Corcovado mountain so is basically a giant lightning rod. Taken on its own, no big deal, but then…

Snake-handling preacher dies from rattlesnake bite in West Virginia

By Gil Aegerter, Staff Writer, NBC News

West Virginia preacher Mark Randall “Mack” Wolford, who believed Christians should handle snakes to test their faith, died after a rattlesnake bit him over the weekend.

Wolford was bitten on the thigh about 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon, but he didn’t come to the hospital until 10:30 p.m., a nursing supervisor at Bluefield Regional Medical Center told the Charleston Daily Mail. The incident occurred during an outdoor service at Panther State Forest, about 80 miles west of Bluefield in southern West Virginia, the paper said.
