article imagePhotos: Cloud angel over Florida heralds Pope Francis

By JohnThomas Didymus     Mar 14, 2013 in World
A beautiful cloud angel appeared over Royal Palm Beach area in South Florida a few hours after Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio emerged as Pope Francis. The angel may be heaven's signal of approval of the Cardinals' choice, faithfuls say.
The angel was witnessed by many South Floridans who snapped photos from several perspectives and sent them to local TV stations including WFLX and WPTV.
Florida resident Jodi Guthrie snapped the first photo below sent to WPTV. Rob J. captured the beautiful second perspective sent to WFLX.
Even skeptics would agree that the gorgeously pink-attired "Angel sent [from God] for the new pope" was a striking sight indeed.
Carol Shoupe Tognacci, a South Floridan who saw the angel, said: "We saw this tonight at Military and Lake Worth Rd. Followed it all the way north... and by the time we got home she had a huge halo. It was amazing."

A pious believer said: "The Pope asked to pray for him. God answered."
But some dispute this is what believers assume. MSN Now reports that some, relying on the St. Malachy prophecy, have suggested unkindly that it could be Lucifer himself heralding his candidate.

MSN Now argues that God could have silenced the skeptics by making the angel appear over the Vatican or better still over the Pope himself. Florida does seem a little too far away from Rome.
