The tabernacle is made of steel, but has two bronze-colored doors, said the bishop. Bergie suspected that perhaps the thieves thought the tabernacle was made of gold, or perhaps had a more nefarious intent with stealing the hosts. “Who knows what goes through the minds of these people,” he said. A tabernacle full of conscrated Hosts was stolen from St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral in Ontario, Canada. Security footage shows two people, a man and a woman, breaking into the cathedral at approximately 4:30 a.m. on Sept. 8 - the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The tabernacle is not made of precious materials, but is made of steel, with two bronze-colored doors. Bishop Gerard Bergie of St. Catharines went on the radio pleading for the two thiefs to return it, saying: “The tabernacle can be replaced. It’s the contents, that is what is so precious to us. That’s what’s irreplaceable." Dr Taylor Marshall provides analysis.

This morning I did a show on the Tabernacle stolen in Ontario. I suggested it was the theft of hosts and not the "steel box". Well, the tabernacle has been found, empty of hosts. Catholic parishioners searched the general area and found the discarded tabernacle in Centennial Park submerged in the Old Welland Canal. This confirms my original suggestion that the aim of this crime was to steal consecrated Hosts - the Body of Christ for means of desecration. The Eucharist is what they want.
