The BBC reports:

«The lightning bolt hit Caviezel and the film’s assistant director Jan Michelini while they were filming [Gibson’s The Passion of Christ] in a remote location a few hours from Rome.

It was the second time Michelini had been hit by lightning during the shoot.»

It would be imprudent to conclude that some nameless deity isn’t pleased with this movie simply because the asst. director has been smote twice with heavenly fire. However if a third lightning strike occurs, Michelini might want to consider dropping out of this project at first available opportunity and making some discreet inquiries with the Roman Church.

No one wants to see how a fourth omen would manifest.

Of course, five omens are right out.

update: Apparently the All-Mighty is throwing quite a few lightning bolts around these days. In early October 2003, Lightning strikes a church during a sermon after preacher identifies thunder as the voice of God.

Perhaps I should invest in shoes with thick rubber soles?
