“Thieves broke into a small church in the mountains east of Rome over the weekend and stole a reliquary with the blood of the late Pope John Paul II.”
Also missing was a crucifix, both rather odd choices for thieves to go for.
A custodian of the church “said on Monday the incident felt more like a kidnapping than a theft. “In a sense, a person has been stolen.””
Yeeeeaaahhh, Probably not. It’s been a rough couple days for Catholic symbolism.
