Spanish police are reportedly investigating a case of satanic vandalism after a priest found the number 666 and upside down crosses at a Spanish church containing the Veil of Veronica, a relic believed to have touched the face of Jesus Christ. Catholic News Agency reported on Monday that a priest at the Monastery of the Holy Face in Alicante discovered the satanic 666 number on the shatter-proof glass containing the Roman Catholic relic, while several upside down crosses

were found at the Stations of the Cross, which mark Jesus’ journey toward His crucifixion. Security cameras showed that the perpetrator was a young woman who hid herself inside the church on Saturday night. Although her name has not been released, authorities have reportedly identified her, and she is due to be arrested. In addition to the satanic messages, the woman apparently stole a liturgical prayer book and another one where the liturgical acts of the monastery are recorded. READ MORE
