Man allegedly steals communion wafers from priest

JENSEN BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Police in said they arrested a Connecticut man
after he tried to steal communion wafers during a church service. The
Martin County Sheriff's Office said 33-year-old John Samuel Ricci, of
Canton, was cornered by fellow churchgoers when he grabbed a handful
of wafers from the priest during communion services Saturday.

The Stuart News reported that Ricci was being held down by six or seven
offended parishioners when deputies arrived at St. Martin de Porres
Catholic Church in Jensen Beach. Police say two parishioners, ages 82 and
61, received minor injuries in the scuffle.
Ricci was charged with two counts of simple battery, theft and disruption
of a religious assembly. He was being held Tuesday on $2,000 bond at the
Martin County Jail.

Those are not just Wafers; After the priest blessed the wafers it turned into the body of Christ.... That guy actually was trying to steal the body of Christ...

Say 4 our fathers and a glory be, and clean the priest's rect....ory and you awill be forgiven.

There's been an uptick in Communion desecration over the past year; there was a well-publicized event done by atheist P.Z. Myers in July/August. It will get worse before it gets better.
