Excerpt from How It Happened: Being a Story in Three Books and Several Manners

The women in St. Ignatius stood stanchly behind the vestrymen in their plan of turning the parish and the parish church upside down and inside out. The church itself was a massive stone building, some thing squat, something square, with only one bell and the merest figment of stained glass. The devout men and devouter women set their hearts upon a new bell tower, a springing campanile to rise above the vestry, and ?ing abroad the notes of bells in chime. They planned, too, a new altar, windows all the length of the church more gorgeous than Sheba's gems, a roof of Gothic frettings, and pews in themselves pro vocative of devotion. The struggle to secure all these things was so keen and sharp a good few among the very elect of the sanctuary forgot or over looked that there were such things as aching hearts or hungry bodies in this well-churched world.
