Overheard

January 22, 2007

This morning I heard one woman say to another in a stage whisper as I walked by: “Father doesn’t have issues. He has a subscription.”

    I love this!

    Father, are you sure we can’t borrow you up here? We wouldn’t keep you long: just 30 or 40 years or so!

    Bah! Forget that bitter old shrew! She’s the one who’s missing out anyway, and she’s the one who’s going to have to answer for that comment, and whatever nasty little thoughts were lurking behind it. I’ll add her to my prayers.

    On the bright side, at least you have the consolation of knowing that the vast majority of saints were not appreciated by those whom they served (sometimes to an extreme, which is how we have martyrs!). It’s all part of that whole suffering-along-with-Christ thing. Fun stuff.

    Still praying for you, Father! 🙂
