Do you recall the post about saving a spectacularly beautiful church, a shrine to St. Ann, in Fall River, MA? Miracles have been granted there.
A lot has happened since I posted that. One thing that happened is that a group of lay people made a deal with the diocese to keep it open. A long-time reader here, whom I wrote of today in the post about Ham Radio and ZedNet, is involved with that church.
A news story. HERE
Go look at the photos of the place. What a shame were it to close. What a great thing these people are doing to save that historic church!
It is true that great churches come and go. That’s been the history of Christianity. Not only churches… but Churches! Christ didn’t promise that Hell wouldn’t prevail against Churches in N. Africa… or churches in Fall River.
However, we live in a time of wealth and of social communications. If we lose these churches now, we probably won’t be able build their likes again.
