Savarimuthu Sankar, said: "We are not sure if it was just a theft case or a deliberate attempt to create mischief " The act of vandalism is the fifth against a Catholic church in the past two months. Police have launched an investigation.
So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).
