Poverty is not a reason to steal.
This was the statement of Fr. Edwin Chiu in his homily on Thursday morning, October 3 about the alleged burglary at the Holy Rosary Parish Boracay and the ransacking of the donation box.
It was learned that the incident occurred on Wednesday afternoon after Fr. Chiu and company had finished lunch.
The padlock of the donation box was destroyed and the money inside was stolen by an unknown suspect or suspects.
However, they were confident that the stolen money was just of small amount since they just opened the donation box a few days ago to get its content in order to record.
Nevertheless, they were disappointed because of the incident.
