    Old structures need to be upgraded constantly, be it a church or any other establishment. Through education, and advancement in science & technology, we invented lot of products. We also upgraded our status economically, hence lets come out and repair or upgrade with solid materials of all these old dilapidated churches and structures. Nature makes us innovative.

    Awakening call for the faithful followers across all religions. Nature does not respect the sanctity of places of worship !!! Likewise Covid19 virus, preys on the atheists as well as men and women from every faith.... This fundamentally questions, the very existence of a divine creator !!!

    Milagris Church is among-st the oldest Catholic worship Places. The Parish Priests of this church have all along served the people particularly in times of need. The Parish Priests all along have done their best for The Community. The Present Parish Priest Father Bonaventure Nazareth is going all out to help The Parish Community. It is a matter of regret that while he (The Parish Priest) is going all out to renovate The Parish Church and The Building this unfortunate incident has occurred. May he be blessed by Our Patroness Mother Mary. Hope people of GOODWILL particularly the parishioners will now come forward with a helping hand

    Forget everything. First ask parish priest of Milagres church if they have a lightening arrestor installed atop the church. If not ask them to install at once.

    It appears the lightning struck the old church which is used for funerals. Instal lightning arrestor. No need to read between the lines or attribute motives. Repair it and reuse it. That's it.

    I fully agree with you. This is old structure, and that too outskirt of city. Having said, it doesn't mean that lightning arrestor should not have been installed. However, if we conduct a survey today within the Mangalore city, a would be smart city, how many lightning arrestors are installed in recently built structures. You will find hardly few. Why our officials are not inspecting and investigating prior issuing the completion certificate. Then we have mentally sick people like Vicky. Hope he or his family members will not be affected in the near future.

    @ Vicky : come out of your senses don't be so superstitions, don't compare natural calamity as god's punishment. Christian god is not a punishing god it's a god of love remember that.

    Only truth here is that there was no lightning arrestor. Please install a 100 micron copper bonded lightning arrestor with pointed spike with minimum 25mm x 3mm thick GI earthing strip for lightning protection. Does not cost much but gives very good protection when installed at proper elevations. Also make sure all the eathing pits are interconnected as a good practice. If you have the budget then you can also think of installing an early streamer in place of simple copper bonded pointed spike.

    Vicky, Damaskatte is right to a great extent. If it is truth, even 100 people says it is lie, still it is truth. When any bad incident happens, it is a warning sign from the Almighty. Be observative and protect yourself from the hidden, unforeseen . At least pray to protect you, your family and community. I do agree with those who have aired the opinion, saying why the church has not installed lighting arrestor. Might be the building architect failed to address this.
