“They say lightning does not strike the same spot twice. But with the Christ it does.” —Father Omar Raposo
Rio de Janeiro’s iconic 100-foot tall Christ the Redeemer statue on top of the Corcovado mountain has gotten lit up twice in the past few weeks. Lightning strikes have chipped two of the world’s largest Art Deco statue’s fingers, as well as a part of its head. Workers are examining the statue as part of the repairs, and they will also devise a plan to extend His lightning rods.

Workers are currently in the service of Christ:
He shall be whole again soon:
