Talk about messing around and finding out!
In the attempted robbery of Christ the King Parish in Monterrey, this man decided to do battle with the statue of the most infamous angelic warrior and lost in spectacular form.
In the darkness, Alonso reportedly jumped over the fence in front of the church entrance, broke a glass door, and entered the church.
While trying to flee with a statue of St. Michael the Archangel, the alleged thief tripped and fell on the angel's sword, seriously injuring his neck.
Some passersby saw the wounded man at the church doors and called for medical help.
Monterrey Civil Protection personnel arrived at the scene, cut the padlock on the main gate of the fence, and saved the would-be thief's life.
After stabilizing the injured man, the rescuers took him to a clinic to be treated and to get more information about the damage that may have been caused.
The man would likely have bled out and died if someone didn't walk by and noticed he needed help!
Can you imagine walking into the church the next day, opening the doors, and seeing a man impaled on Michael's sword in the middle of the sanctuary?
It is expected that once he has recovered, the suspect will be turned over to the public prosecutor's office, and the punishment he could face for the damage to the church will be determined.
The statue of St. Michael the Archangel was unharmed.
I think that the drunk may have received enough instant justice. The dude should consider himself lucky considering the type of foes Michael fights in the Bible:
"Then war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels also fought, but he could not prevail, and there was no place for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was thrown out — the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him." - Revelation 12:7-9
