    NEW YORK (Reuters) - As financial workers suffer through tumultuous times on Wall Street, some are turning to an old source of solace: religion.

    Religious leaders said attendance was up at lunchtime meetings in New York's financial district last week, with many more people in business attire than usual.

    That is hardly surprising, said Reverend Mark Bozzuti-Jones of Trinity Church Wall Street, given that people don't know if their employers will survive from one day to the next.

    "The economic financial crisis is a reminder that we cannot put our faith in riches, that we cannot put our faith in money," Bozzuti-Jones said in his sermon at lunchtime on Friday, which he devoted to coping with the financial crisis.

    A handful of men in suits and ties and women in business attire were among dozens of people at the Episcopal church, which was hit by debris from the World Trade Center collapse on September 11, 2001.

    Let us pray that our communist overlords treat us fairly.

    Oh great, the big invisible man in the sky is really going to give a shit about them. *roll eyes* Even if that god was real, if he cared so much this wouldn't have happened in the first place, nor would he appreciate people only bugging him when they have problems.

    Must be what they learn at finance school. We had a rogue trader here do millions of dollars worth of damage to his bank. He went Buddhist.

    Well, at least he didn't go Fundie Phelps or something.
