God Dropped the Ball?

A WOULD-BE thief who attempted to steal a church donation box in Munich suffered divine retribution in the form of a falling statue of a saint that gashed his head, the German website The Local reported yesterday.

The Local said the nearly life-size statue of Saint Antonius tumbled from its wooden base as the thief was trying to break open the donation box attached to the same structure.

“He (the saint) obviously did not want to let it go,” it quoted the church’s priest, Ludwig Sperrer, as saying with a grin.

But the thief didn’t undergo a miraculous conversion despite the statue’s apparent intervention.

He went to a nearby house to ask for help for his bleeding head and while there, his female accomplice stole a wallet left lying on the counter.
