Here is a story about the Franciscan Sisters of Christ the King who have decided not to charge rent for a football field on their property.
Why the change of heart for the nuns?
“They say they have no money,” said Sister Mary Bonaventure, the corporation treasurer.
“We can try it for this season and see how it goes. We’ve never had a football game in our back yard. Anybody who might have a football game literally in their back yard would be concerned.”
You would think that someone wanted to put up a nuclear power plant or some chemical plant. I just think that it is funny that someone would be concerned about a football game in their backyard.
Sister Bonaventure isn’t sure whether the nuns will attend.
“Maybe that would shake up the opposing team,” she said with a laugh. “We’ll see about that.”
