Selfless Nuns Pray To RSS Feed Of Bad News

The Poor Clares, an isolated group of non-speaking nuns, have taken it upon themselves to pray for the ills of the world - praying made easier thanks to a live link to world-at-large bad news.

This rapid-reaction crack prayer unit has been enabled thanks to an art project by students at South London art college Goldsmiths, who have created a custom-made, T-shaped news ticker. The nuns have previously prayed in response to letters, phone calls and emails read on their lone computer - now they're able to pray for the victims of bad news as it breaks. [The Guardian]
