Yeah, that's a real site. ::represses snicker::
Here's the thing, the Chruch has become the economic powerhouse through tithe and donation, but they also, for quite some time, provided monopolized services; aside from silly things like indulgences, they were the place to go for literature of any variety, education, etc. These things cost money, and in all fairness, the church turned a profit on them. Hell, that's better than tithe! At least you're getting something a bit more tangible than the approval of God- not to be Antago-theistic. But seriously, while you might be able to fleece people with a "God wants your money" schtick, you're better off in the long run showing people a return on their investment.
Not to mention of course, most of the monks I've met (and having gone to a Francisican run college that's alot), tend to be professional nice guys. You get a few Father Mackins (aka the Evil Robomackin ::diabolical laughter::), but by and large, they're usually pretty good peeps. So I'm gonna guess that the service is pretty good; at the very least, better than average.
And hell man, look at those prices.
