Soggy letters inspire

The Buffalo News has a story about letters to God, written by schoolchildren more than 100 years ago, found in a cross:


Onto paper the students poured thoughts and prayers they hoped would ascend, like so many curling wisps of smoke, into the skies above turn-of-the-century Buffalo.

Their writings would remain hidden from view for more than a century.

Now -- long after the schoolchildren who wrote them grew old and went to their graves -- the letters written by students at Corpus Christi School on Clark Street have been rediscovered.

Find out how they were discovered and what parishioners did here.
