Markets in everything, Pascal inversion edition

A 22-year-old atheist writes:

…here’s my proposal.  Everytime I come home, I pass this old Irish church.  I promise to go into that church every day— for a certain number of days– for at least an hour each visit.  For every $10 you bid, I will go to the Church for 1 day.  For $50, you would have me going to mass every day for a week.

My promise: I will go willingly and with an open mind.  I will not say/do anything inappropriate.  I will respectfully participate in service, speak to priests, volunteer with the church if possible, do my best to learn about the religious beliefs of the church-goers, and make conversation with anyone who is willing to talk.  (Though I do reserve the rights to ask the person questions about the faith.)

Here is the ebay link, there has been plenty of bidding, and thanks to Josh Glassman for the pointer.
