Officials at Eastern New Mexico University have expressed the Christian virtue of forgiveness to a repentant sinner who committed a bizarre deed while enrolled at the school.

PROTALES, NM (Catholic Online) - According to university officials, they received a box of toilet paper and a Christmas card, along with a very sincere apology.

Apparently, the unnamed student decided some years ago to play a prank on the university by stealing all the rolls of toilet paper from a dormitory.

The note indicated that the miscreant felt guilty but a new-found dedication to Christian faith evoked repentance. As a self-imposed penance, the student sent a box containing 80 rolls of high quality tissue paper to the school.

The appreciative school officials say that the misdeed is forgiven and are happy to put the prank in the past where it belongs.

As for the paper, they say the rolls do not fit the dispensers so they will be donated to a local charity.
