Speaking of collapsing churches. . . .

The Franciscans of Marytown have something in common with the Archbishop of Canterbury: a collapsing church. According to the Chicago Tribune the ceiling of the ornate chapel at Marytown came down just before vespers the other day injuring four. The Marytown is one of the better religious houses in the contemporary church; anyone who has made the total consecration to Our Lady has probably used some of their materials. They really didn't need this; the ordinary maintenance of their facility has always been something of a strain. No wonder St Francis didn't want to own any property.

They have a website here.
