The 104-year-old building that had served as the priory and primary student residence of the small Catholic university where a woman worked was about to be demolished. As the wrecker's ball began to strike, she sensed the anxiety and sadness experienced by one of the older monks whose order had founded the college.
"This must be difficult to watch, Father," she said. "The tradition associated with that building, the memories of all the students and monks who lived and worked there. I can't imagine how hard this must be for you."
"It's worse than that," the monk replied. "I think I left my Palm Pilot in there."
