CANFIELD, Ohio, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Monks from the Syro-Russian Orthodox Catholic Church have officially opened a monastery in Ohio complete with a hotel and bookstore.

The monks said the Monastery Inn in Canfield, which they opened at the former Canfield Colonial Motel, includes short- and long-term accommodations as well as a bookstore, a gift shop and a yet-to-be-completed retreat center, The Youngstown (Ohio) Vindicator reported Friday.

It's not much of a hotel. Maybe 20 rooms. It is something out of the 50's. The last owner was running a prostitution, and drug ring out of it. I'm not sure if it is the same set of monks, but there is another Monastary 1/2 a mile down the road. They put up the CBN broadcasts on Sunday mornings. Knowing what the Monks plan on doing with the hotel, we would all be better off if it was torn down. They plan on shipping in degenerates to help turn their lives around. Good luck with that....
