    I didn't know which 'no debate' forum to post this in so it ended up here. BUT please don't turn this into a debate. I think it's an interesting and inspirational place, with an inspirational story.

    Nestled in the foothills above Golden, Colorado, the Mother Cabrini Shrine rests in quiet contemplation. The arid mountaintop was purchased by nun Frances Xavier Cabrini in 1910 to serve as a spiritual retreat for the orphaned girls she cared for in Denver. The site remains a restful place for people to visit and collect their thoughts in the fresh mountain air.
    Every Easter people flock to the shrine to pray and reflect away from the noise of Colorado’s cities. They climb the 373 steps to its mountain peak, passing by stations that tell the story of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. This year, however, the stairs were empty as quarantined worshippers watched other Easter Sunday services through TV screens. Poor WiFi reception on the mountain prevented the shrine from live streaming Easter service for its regular attendees.

    Since Mother Cabrini Shrine reopened in early May, the staff have worked hard to ensure the space is a safe place for people to retreat. There are signs throughout the property requesting visitors respect all safety guidelines, and church gatherings admit fewer people so that everyone is socially distanced. But ensuring the safety of their guests when visiting one of the shrine’s most important features, its holy spring, presented a challenge.

    Seaman has more to look forward to next month. In March, Colorado governor Jared Polis signed a bill replacing Columbus Day with Cabrini Day, making Mother Cabrini the first woman to be recognized with a paid holiday in the US. “We’re excited about it because we get to share her story. It’s about her and her work and her legacy.”

    SpaceX is working an affordable high speed satellite Internet system. Someday people in the wilderness might be linked to the information highway.
