Rev. Fr. Jose Morales, a priest of the Holy Spirit Parish in Horizon City, Texas has called for prayers and reparation after a tabernacle containing the Eucharist was stolen from the church on October 28, 2019.
Unknown individuals broke into the parish and caused minor damages to property and made away with the tabernacle containing the Blessed Sacrament.
Father Jose Morales, priest of the parish, in a Nov. 1 letter said “It is with a very saddened heart that I write these words to you. Sunday night into Monday morning we had some intruders in the church that caused damages and stole items including the tabernacle with the Blessed Sacrament.”
He further encouraged parishioners to be strong at this particular time.
“Let us remain united and strong in the Lord and manifest that we are his faithful followers regardless of the violations that some express.”
Reports from the Catholic News Agency suggests that the incident resulted in minor property damage and stolen items equal to a few thousand dollars, with the worst aspect of the attack being the theft of the Eucharist, the value of which cannot be estimated.
