Unidentified individuals on Jan. 15 desecrated the Blessed Sacrament in a Catholic church in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua.
Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish in the San Rafael del Sur area reported the desecration on its Facebook page Jan. 17.
“In the early morning hours of Sunday, Jan. 15, persons of little scruples and who have no fear of God entered the parish church, getting through the window bars on the back side, opening the closets, grabbing the key for the Blessed Sacrament, and desecrating the Blessed Sacrament, leaving the tabernacle and consecrated hosts on the floor,” the parish reported.
The parish encouraged all the local faithful to “turn to prayer” and announced an act of reparation for the desecration.
