Sinful Holy Water

Kinda reminds me of the Gospel reading about Jesus asking the Samaritan woman at the well for water. And then he tells his disciples that he has food they know not of.

Catholic World News : Interlopers try to steal, sell water from Pope's garden hose
Bavarian police have foiled a bizarre scheme to steal water from a garden hose in a house that belongs to Pope Benedict XVI.

Police in Pentling, a suburb of Regensburg, arrested a man who identified himself as freelance journalist who was caught videotaping a break-in at the Pope’s house. Three men-- who have to date escaped capture-- were drawing water from the garden hose while the “journalist” taped the event. Officials in Pentling say that the water from the Pope’s garden was to be sold on the internet auction site, Ebay.
