Catholic diocese buys Crystal Cathedral

Purchase price, $57.5 million:

In a letter to the court, Schuller, 85, said he could not abide the thought that Chapman University, which had tried to buy the 40-acre facility, might someday use the cathedral for non-religious purposes, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Times reports that Coleman, Schuller’s daughter, said in a statement that the decision to select the Catholic Church “breaks her heart.” She said she hopes “there is still plenty of time for God to do His miracle.”

God has yet to miraculously fix the mess that is the world economy so I think she’s just gonna have to suck it up. At least the arrangement lets them use the facilities for a few more years before they’re out on their ears. I think that’s fairly generous.
