This hits home...

Recovering Catholic that I am...

Each Friday night after work Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill and cook venison steaks for the neighborhood.

All of Bubba's neighbors were Catholic. So during Lent, they were forbidden to eat meat on Friday.

On the Fridays of Lent, the delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.


The priest came to visit Bubba and suggested that he become a Catholic.

After several classes and much study Bubba attended Mass.


And as the priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said:

"You were born a Baptist, and raised a Baptist but now you are a Catholic..."

Bubba's neighbors were greatly relieved...

Until the first Friday of the next Lenten season and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison again filled the neighborhood.

The neighbors called the priest immediately...

He rushed into Bubba's yard clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him...

But all he could do was watch in amazement....

There stood Bubba...

Clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted:

"You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised a deer, but now you is a catfish..."



Thanks to my best-looking younger brother for sharing this....
