Thief Steals the Blessed Sacrament

I just found out that a thief broke into a church in Carbondale, PA, in the diocese of Scranton, and stole a ciborium full of consecrated hosts.

According to news reports, nothing else was stolen except the ciborium, which may indicate that the thief was intent on getting the Blessed Sacrament in order to commit some sacrilege.

The local ordinary, His Excellency Joseph Bambera, rededicated the desecrated church the day after the sacrilegious theft.

Please join me in offering prayers of reparation for this terrible outrage:

Prayer: act of reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
