Even invoking the Eighth Commandment hasn’t helped. When the cabbage-sized roses that Monsignor Eamonn Lyng so lovingly nurtures started disappearing from the bushes outside his church, he posted a sign on the garden wall of Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in downtown La Jolla.
It exhorted: "Thou shalt not steal the roses." Didn’t work. Someone stole the sign. And the roses kept disappearing, too.
Lyng nailed up a second warning. It, too, was ripped down, but left on the ground. He isn’t giving up. "The sign is going back up," he vowed yesterday. [Source]
