Beer stealing...nun

Good morning economists. Usually when we go grocery shopping we make a list of the items we need and we try to buy according to our budget. The problem is one of utility maximization subject to a budget constraint. But what happens when your budget is not enough to cover your basic needs...say beer drinking? Apparently this nun in Oklahoma found the solution:
The nun stole a couple of cans of beer and water. Even though we do not know whether the nun was actually charged of a crime, I can imagine her reaction to a possible interrogation. "Jesus turned the water into beer!"

On a more serious note, should we be worried when nuns are forced to steal?

Have a religious day!
