Church Stolen

The Church of Christ's Resurrection, in Komarovo, Russia, has disappeared! According to a spokesman, the thief(s) stole it brick by brick.

The church is in a remote area and is only visited by clergymen, so the theft was not immediately noticed. However, a report has been filed, which the clergymen believe will show who committed the crime.

The Church of Christ's Resurrection was built in 1809. While it was not in use, a recent survey showed it to be structurally sound and the diocese had been considering reopening it for services. The foundation still remains.

Apparently, this is no isolated case, as religious accoutrement fetch high prices and the materials are used to build other structures. "This is not an isolated case. In many villages in central Russia, sites of historical interest are being dismantled," said spokesman, Father Vitaly.
