Say, it doesn’t seem like more than a few months back when we got a solicitation package with some really wild declarations about a French order of Benedictine Monks who had supposedly moved themselves lock, stock and barrel to the Diocese of East Oklahoma, whose head, I believe, is the Bishop of Tulsa.
They even talked in their literature of having to convince some general contractor or the other that their specifications for their projected monastery buiding were that it had to be guaranteed to last “1,000 years,” which I doubt even the original constractor-architects for the Tower of Babel would have been so rash as to promise!
Talk about tempting Yahweh!
At any rate, a few weeks back yours truly was tempted to click on what we supposed would have been their abbot’s “official website,” to see, if nothing else, how this man of men and his spiritual warriors were progressing.
But! No luck, at least not that weekend. Same with the Diocese of Eastern Oklahoma’s own official website: yeah, we got it o.k., but no reference, at least that I could find, to any such a religious order.
Thus, I 'b be happy to hear form anyone with up to date information about these fiery religious warriors: did they ever exist in the first place?
Did the Bishop of Tulsa actually say what they seem to quote him as saying, something about these monks “restoring christianity” to the good people of Oklahoma in general and to those in Tulsa in particuar?
Thanks for any input
