Associated Press reports that a monastery out of Worcester, Massachusetts, is raising money in a pretty unorthodox way:  they are peddling an anti-wrinkle cream!  With the blessing (no pun intended) of the inventor scientist whose work on the human heart lead to the by-product firming cream, Carmalite monks and nuns are hoping that Easeamine® will rescue their financially troubled community.

See the full story in the Boston Herald, aptly titled “Monks put faith in wrinkle-cream to raise funds.”
