More Buddhist Catholics

I've written many times about the scandalous activities of the disobedient Jesuits of Mt. Manresa, particularly their long-time, regularly scheduled Zen meditation classes which were conducted by a "resident sensei". As recently as December 2011 this group was holding sessions at Mt. Manresa. Therefore I was very surprised to read in the Advance that the group had moved their classes to Wagner College. I wonder why. Did someone in authority finally have the guts to put an end to this disgraceful collaboration?

Postscript: as it turns out, no, there wasn't a sudden revival of orthodoxy at Mt. Manresa, just greed: the reason the Zen meditation group moved was because Mt. Manresa tripled their rent, while the space at Wagner College is being provided free of charge.
