Won’t you fly? But this faithful “infidel” who steals money from a devotee’s bag goes viral

  • Won’t you fly? But this “infidel” devotee who steals money from the devotee’s bag is going viral. Police are investigating the theft at Kochchikade church in Sri Lanka after CCTV footage.

Mangalou: This incident of a woman, whether she is a Catholic devotee or of a different religion, is a WARNING to every woman who attends a mass or a prayer service in church must ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR PURCHASE ! Here is the incident which took place a few days ago in Kochchikade in Sri Lanka, and the Fore Shore police are opening an investigation into a theft inside Saint Anthony’s Shrine in Kochchikade – in which a woman stole from money to a woman while she was praying. Police said investigations were launched following examination of CCTV footage showing the woman stealing money from a woman’s purse as she prayed. Police said around Rs. 3,000 (Sri Lankan rupee) in cash was stolen from the bag. This incident which occurred in Sri Lanka, could also occur in India, or even in Kodiyal aka Kudla / Mangaluru!

It should be noted that this is the same shrine / church that on April 21, 2019, Easter Sunday, was part of a series of targets in a series of suicide bombings across Sri Lanka . At least 93 people were killed in the blast. On June 9, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the church and paid tribute to the victims. On June 12, 2019, the historic sacred church was renovated only by the Sri Lankan navy and was opened to the public for the first time since the attacks. Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith led a special liturgy in remembrance of the victims of the Easter Sunday attack. He referred to what he called the failures of the Sri Lankan government and its leaders on this occasion.

Now let’s get to the real story, although one of the Ten Commandments of God that Christians / Catholics believe is “YOU SHALL NOT STEAL” (the eighth commandment), there are many who even engage in theft. at church, which you can see in the video below. At least after seeing the video, Catholic worshipers, especially women, should be careful and keep an eye on their belongings, especially their bags / purses. And especially when they go up to the altar to receive communion in church, women are supposed to leave their purses in the pews. Because it seems insulting to the congregation to take them with them. It seems like we don’t trust our fellow worshipers. And if your purse is stolen, will the Church take responsibility for it?

My aunt believes exactly the opposite. She says that saints and sinners come to church and that she does not intend to be robbed by sinners. When I tried to have my aunt fixed the problem, she said she was attending mass with her friend next door who was not communicating to watch her purse. Usually she just leaves it locked in the car so she doesn’t have to worry. Sometimes she attends services alone, it is not possible to have someone watch her purse, so we are always concerned about this to death.

I have seen women dragging their purses up to the altar with them at solemn events such as funerals and Easter celebrations, and even weddings. The bridesmaids in matching dresses all have their own incomparable handbags by their side. I know we all need to watch out for potential purse thieves, but in church? I feel bad to see potential thieves in every bench, and I have to admit that this whole issue affected my concentration. What should it be? Leave it on the bench, take it everywhere with you, or lock it in the trunk of the car?

Can we trust our fellow parishioners? As one lady pointed out, not everyone in the church is above temptation. She wants you to keep your sense of optimism about humanity, but she wants you to keep your purse too. However, especially during Sunday mass, I saw quite a few women attending the service coming with bags / handbags full of items. Your purse is there to keep all of your belongings safely stored in one place. There are some items that you should always keep in your purse, like wallets, keys, and some cosmetics. Other items, such as sensitive documents and old receipts, should definitely be left at home if your purse is lost or stolen.

Sources reveal that few things other than basic personnel essentials that you should never keep in your purse are: A list of your passwords; Identification documents; Your debit card, your check books and your large sums of money; Your entire makeup collection; Old receipts; Perishable snacks; Gift cards and credit cards; Membership and loyalty cards; Less stuff

Remember that your purse or tote shouldn’t be heavy. Lightening your load is not only better for your body, but also protects you in the event that someone takes over your things. So all of you Catholic women the next time you attend mass or church service only carry what is important in your purse or purse and ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR BUSINESS, including YOUR BAG. Because not all the faithful follow the Ten Commandments of God, of which the Eight Commandment says “YOU WILL NOT STEAL?”
