Fifteen nuns in Omaha, Neb., say they forgive a man who stole their Social Security checks after they let him into their convent to pray.

Sister Teresita of the Contemplative Sisters of the Good Shepherd said the checks, worth $2,489, were found uncashed at a nearby post office Friday, several hours after they were stolen.The nuns realized that the checks were missing shortly after they gave the man something to eat.
