$2M stolen from Spanish convent

Catholic World News - March 09, 2011

Over $2 million, stored in plastic bags, has been stolen from the Cistercian Monastery of Santa Lucia in Zaragoza, Spain, according to European press reports.

“The sisters said that it was money that they had saved over several years,” said a police spokeswoman.

In addition to their life of prayer, the nuns paint and restore books.
