Thanks to Mary Lou for sending this one!

services when  she was startled by an intruder.

She caught the burglar robbing her home  of its valuables and she yelled,

Christ so that your sins may be  forgiven').

The burglar stopped in his tracks.  The woman calmly  called the police
and explained what she had done.
