CWN Editor's Note: Thieves broke into a parish church in Brooklyn last week, breaking into the tabernacle and tossing the Blessed Sacrament around the altar.

The thieves removed the tabernacle, which was valued at $2 million, from St. Augustine’s church; they also took the head from a statue and the building’s security cameras. The church had been closed for renovations at the time of the crime.
