Thieves steal ancient religious artifact from San Francisco church

The church's most treasured relic believed to contain a fragment of the true cross was stolen from a display case. "The true cross is a relic that goes back 2,000 years to the very cross of Christ himself. For it to be stolen in this kind of very deliberate way is certainly both upsetting and very saddening," Hurley said.

Hurley showed ABC7 News how a thief or thieves popped out a lock on the case and made off with a relic, leaving behind the red waxed papal seal from the 1700's.
