A Catholic priest wounded 2 robbers, one disguised as a
priest, when the pair broke into the rectory of St. Patrick's
Church, Lisbon, Ohio. In an exchange of gunfire in the rectory
kitchen, the priest, Fr. Thomas Beldue, was slightly wounded. In
passing sentence on the robbers, the judge said, "I glory in Fr.
Beldue's defense of his person and the money of his church, and it
would be much better if more householders were armed and resisted
burglars the way he did. I am proud of him."
