Overnight on 23-24 October, someone broke into the holy place on Mount Tabor. Icons were damaged, a statue was taken, communion bread was desecrated and offerings were stolen. Petty thieves might be responsible. For Mgr Marcuzzo, the “serious incident” shows a “lack of the sense of the sacred”. Shortly, an act of reparation will be undertaken by the whole community.
