The last time I checked out the happenings of nuns, they were giving all of God’s support towards the San Antonio Spurs. And it worked – they won the NBA title back in June. Now another group of nuns are doing their best to help the needy, but for a price.
The Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in Phoenix is looking to pay off a loan, and so they’ve done the only sensible thing. They are opening up their doors for Super Bowl lodging, turning typical retreat rooms into a makeshift hotel. You could easily pay $1,000 a night for a fancy hotel or rental home that weekend, but is there a better good-luck sign for your team than staying at a religious institution? And at $250 per night, it’s a relative bargain.
Many a fan has asked for God’s help this season, and he answered the prayers of the two teams who’ve made it this far. So is there a better place to spend the weekend at one of his homes? Let’s just say you’ll have a little more going for your team at the game.
“I would think it would lend itself to having a lot of people praying for them,” Sister Linda Campbell said jokingly. "It can't hurt.”The Monastery has updated its facilities to all the typical amenities: satellite TV and high-speed internet now make the place a more modern place. But the rowdy should beware – it won’t be a party-scene...alcohol will not be allowed.
As of yet the Monastery has yet to book any rooms for next weekend. Will you be the first?
