The Rev. Barbara Cheney: Shock and Tears

Here’s a distraction from the current situation in the Anglican Communion. The Rev. Barbara Cheney, a clerical deputy from the Diocese of Connecticut had an important chalice stolen last Sunday.

From the Hartford Courant:

Officials of the Episcopal Church of St. Paul and St. James are hoping for the return of a nearly 100-year-old chalice that was stolen sometime on Sunday.

The gold and silver chalice, which is adorned with a dozen semiprecious stones, was consecrated by parishioners in 1909. Church leaders don't believe it was ever appraised, but they consider it priceless.

"The initial response was shock and tears," said the Rev. Barbara Cheney. "I don't know that it ... tests the faith in God. It tests sometimes the faith in other people."
