Blessed Sacrament was stolen from the Shrine of the Divine Word

Below is a distressing news from Carlos Palad:

I just learned this afternoon that, just this week (Monday, I think), the Blessed Sacrament was stolen from the Shrine of the Divine Word inside the Christ the King Seminary Compound of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) along E. Rodriguez Sr. Ave.

This incident is most distressing because it occurred inside what is supposedly a guarded compound, a seminary no less.

Furthermore, this is — as far as I know — the third theft of the Blessed Sacrament that has occured in the past few months in the Quezon City-Manila area. Holy Trinity Church in Balic-Balic, Sampaloc (which has had thefts of the Blessed Sacrament at least thrice before) and Christ the King in Greenmeadows have also experienced this sacrilege.

Let us make acts of atonement and penance for these outrages.
