St. Katherine Drexel, pray for us.

The order St. Katherine founded has gone the way of many orders and now they are selling her shrine and next year her remains will be moved to Philadelphia.  I don't want to hear about the new Springtime in the Church anymore.

when I lived in Oklahoma, the Tribal council had a mural of their ancestors and benefactors. Two nuns were on the mural: Mother Katherine, and the head of a local small diocesan order who took over the schooling.

Her sisters are dying out now: But their mission is no longer needed, so that is expected. You know, she inherited a huge income from her father's will, which she used to fund her schools...but the will did not allow her to say where the money went when she died. So she lived to a ripe old age, dying shortly before the supreme court mandating school integration, which helped the blacks in the south get a decent education.

Her remains will be moved to ... Phil-adelph-ia?

Same name as seventh Church of Apocalypse.

If you know Avel Brito, he's a "bishop of Ephesus" not residing in Ephesus - he considers the candlestick had been moved. Wonder if it will be moved to Philadelphia in Pennsylvania?
