SATANIC CULT BELIEVED BEHIND ATTEMPTED THEFT OF HOSTS
From a link at New Oxford Review comes this story. WPBF.com Jensen Beach, Florida reports:
John Samuel Ricci was arrested Saturday after Father Marco de Leon said he tried to grab a handful of wafers, called hosts in Catholic vernacular, from him during communion services. Several parishioners held Ricci down until authorities arrived.
Two days earlier, another man was caught on a surveillance camera stealing the church's new book of prayers.
"There are satanic cults in the local area, and in order for a black mass to be properly conducted ritually, they need consecrated hosts," or religious items blessed by a priest, Moligano said.
Additionally, snakes were found outside of the church doors and appeared to be trying to obtain entrance. A live snake was also found curled around the handlebars of Ricci's bike that had been placed in storage.
