On Sunday, a vigil was held at the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado where 12 were killed in the early morning hours Friday.

As mourners gathered together to remember the victims and to pray for those who were hurt or left behind, Crystal Fuller snapped a photo of the moving scene.  She posted the image on Facebook, and that’s when she and her friends noticed what appears to be the form of an angel in the clouds directly over the site of the massacre.

“I noticed it afterwards. I had it posted and said crazy cloud … one of my friends, Barbara Masias, said it’s an angel and I saw it!” Fuller posted on a local Denver news page.

What do you think?  Is this a sign in the heavens that God is sending to comfort people?  Our idea of what angels look like is quite different than how they are described Biblically.  And yet, the Bible also discusses angels appearing in many forms, and perhaps it is possible that the Lord sent a comforting image to those gathered to show that in the midst of all of this tragedy, He is there.  As the multitude of mourners prayed for understanding, a certain bit of scripture rings true:

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”  Matthew 18:20
