This is so heartbreaking!

Relics of Sts. Francisco and Jacinta Marto were stolen from a Catholic Church in Italy while they were on a pilgrimage tour. The theft occurred Wed., May 29. Police are looking for two suspects.

Parish priest Fr. Father Andrea Ronconi of Jesus Christ Divine Worker Catholic Church said he is “heartbroken and mortified.”

Fr. Ronconi also said the theft included copies of the crown and rosary of the Our Lady of Fatima statue.

Pope Francis canonized the Marto children May 13, 2017 in Portugal. Let us pray that they find these precious relics of the two shepherd children!

St. Anthony, please find the relics of St. Francisco Marto and St. Jacinta Marto!
