Red Sox theology watch.
The Sisters of the Episcopalian Society of St. Margaret's in Roxbury, Massachusetts, above, represent 240 combined years of Red Sox devotion. The Philocrites household, on the other hand, represents a mere seven years of devotion — but we sure do join the sisters in New England's favorite petty idolatry:
Evidence that they may be getting carried away: when they arrived 20 minutes late to 8:30 p.m. chapel Wednesday, after watching early innings of Game 1, Sister Grace Gallant remarked, "God will understand, God is a Red Sox fan."
