They denounce the theft of several objects of worship in the church of Torrox

The friends of the other people no longer respect the places of worship. The last example has been in the church of Our Lady of the Incarnation of Torrox, where in the early hours of last Saturday some strangers entered and took several cult objects, belonging to an image of the Virgen de los Dolores and the rosary. As reported on Tuesday the parochial brotherhood of the temple, among the objects that were stolen are the crown-diadem of the Virgin of Los Dolores, which the brotherhood acquired with so much effort two years ago thanks to all the brothers; the earrings and the cross of the painful one.

In addition, thieves desecrated the tabernacle, which they opened and have broken when trying to tear two little angels of gold metal and the cross that finished off. Likewise, they have missed the key of the tabernacle, "the most important symbol of a parish," they added. "It is very unfortunate, but these things that we often see on television or social networks is real and this time it has touched our people," they said in a statement released through social networks

According to the brotherhood, in the church "there is nothing of gold or any object of economic value, since the goods are made of copper and bathed in gold or silver metal to give a dignified appearance". "They can not be melted or sold, nor can they be used beyond what they were bought or manufactured for. And, obviously, if there was something of gold or silver, it would not be available to anyone ", they explained.

For the brotherhood, the thief or thieves who did it "has lost time, since nothing stolen has any monetary value; but if it is true that the damage is enough and it will cost us effort to fix everything and recover, since the sentimental value is very great ", they added. »Now we have no choice but to ask for your cooperation in case someone saw someone or something strange to let us know. The case is in the hands of the Civil Guard, who took the relevant fingerprints and we hope they can clarify ", they have apostille.

Likewise, they have also asked that the person who did this, "in the case that he read this message, that it is never too late to rectify and repent". »Just go and leave things even on the step if the door is closed. God and all of us will know how to forgive him. In this case, of course we would withdraw the complaint and we would all win ", they added, while they concluded:" We will pray for that person, so that with the help of God he will find the way in life, because the secret of the happiness is in doing good to others ".
