Sadly, there has been an upsurge in violence against Catholics and other Christians in India, a country often associated with religious tolerance, rather than religious persecution.  Catholic Online has a petition for support of Catholics in India:

Please pray for all Christians in India, that they may be free from persecution, and that they may spread the Gospel of Christ freely.

A 33-year old man in Jensen Beach, Florida attempted to steal consecrated Hosts from a parish church during Communion, assaulting a priest and several parishioners in the process.

It is assumed by some that he intended to use the Hosts for some diabolical purpose; perhaps a Black Mass or something like that.  It should be noted that such a crime, if committed by a Catholic, incurs automatic excommunication that can only be lifted by the Pope himself (or presumably, a delegate).  Deliberate desecration of the Eucharist is the most serious crime in canon law, as it is an attempted assault on Jesus Christ Himself.
