Just follow the lightning trail.......

Jefferson County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating a burglary and larceny at a Theresa church.
Rev. Mark R. Reilly, pastor of St. Theresa of Avila Catholic Church, told investigators someone had taken a ciborium from the church sometime between midday on November 20th and midday November 24th.
A ciborium is a metal container with a cover used for the storage of consecrated communion hosts. According to Fr. Reilly, the missing ciborium was filled with consecrated wafers.
The ciborium was removed from a locked tabernacle. The key to the tabernacle was kept in a cupboard in the sacristy, a room near the church altar.
The cupboard was discovered open on Saturday. Nothing else seemed out of order.
The gold plated ciborium is valued at approximately $100.

is this really what you want to be stealing?
