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!

Reach out

By

The story is told about three men who arrived at the gate of heaven almost simultaneously. St. Peter asked them how they died, and the first one said: “When I entered my room, I saw that my belongings had been ransacked, and in a fit of anger I threw the heavy cabinet out of the window, and I had a heart attack.” The second one said: “I was just walking when a cabinet came falling down from above.” And the third one said: “I heard footsteps, and I went inside a cabinet to hide.”

Present in our midst

By

The story is told about a bishop who made a pastoral visit and was so impressed to see his picture hanging along with others on a wall of the dilapidated rectory.
