Hosts are Desercrated in Carbondale, Pennsylvania Parish

Parishioners at St. Rose of Lima parish in Carbondale, Pennsylvania are in shock after learning that someone broke into their church for the sole purpose of stealing a ciborium full of consecrated hosts.

WNEP-TV is reporting that the incident occurred sometime during the evening of Aug. 4 when a thief entered the church through an open window. Monsignor David Tressler, pastor of the parish, said the only thing stolen was the most precious item in the church - the Blessed Sacrament.
