      Guess What's in the Time Capsule!

      http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/30/us/con...ule/index.html

      "Workers taking down a controversial Confederate monument in St. Louis have discovered a 102-year-old time capsule buried in its base.....The capsule is about 18 inches long by 10 inches deep and 10 inches tall, Trout said. It's expected to be opened at an upcoming fund-raiser for the Missouri Civil War Museum."

      So let's take some guesses as to what might be in the 102 year old time capsule!

      Could be some incendiary pro-confederacy racist documents?

      2017-102 = 1915 ... so it was placed well after the civil war ended.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      I haven't seen any news about them opening yet but I did read that they were waiting to do it at a fundraiser for the Missouri Civil War Museum.
