Commission

By

The story is told about a mother superior of a small congregation in a remote village. She was dying and she would not eat or drink anything. One of the nuns saw an Irish whisky in the kitchen and poured a generous amount of it into a glass of milk. When the mother superior tasted it, she took one more sip, then one more until she finished the whole glass! After she said her final instructions and goodbye, she closed her eyes. Suddenly she opened them again and said: “Oh, one more thing: No matter what happens to our congregation, don’t sell that cow!” And with that, she expired, with a smile!

The faith factor

By

The story is told about a man who went to a public library to borrow a book on suicide.

Upon hearing this, the librarian replied, “We have a book, but I will not lend it out to you.” The man asked why not, whereupon the librarian said, “Tell me, who will return the book if you die?”

His picture was clean and spotless, but the others were covered with cobwebs. He thanked the priest for honoring him, whereupon the priest said: “Actually, Monsignor, I must confess that I hung your picture just an hour before you arrived.”

In our small way

By ,

The story is told about an Ilocano who donated blood for a German who needed surgery. He was thrifty and frugal, so imagine his surprise when the German gave him a BMW out of gratitude. Later he donated blood again, but this time the German gifted him with fruits and a thank-you card. When he asked the German why, the latter said: “That’s because I now have Ilocano blood within me!”
