Ribeirao Preto, Brazil, May 6, 2022 / 17:00 pm
The tomb of Blessed Donizetti Tavares de Lima was damaged during an apparent robbery attempt last weekend in Brazil.
Tavares de Lima was a priest known for working miracles and for his tireless work in defense of the poor. His body is kept in the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida in Tambaú, about 60 miles southeast of Ribeirao Preto.
On May 2, the mayor of Tambaú, Leonardo Spiga Real, reported on Facebook that "one of the glass sides that encloses the mausoleum of Blessed Donizetti was broken during an attempted robbery."
Photographs posted by the mayor show that one of the glass panels of the mausoleum which protects the tomb of Blessed Donizetti was smashed.
