|"Father, you want me to do what?"|
Some cautions before I share it with you:
1) Please don't get distracted and hung up about what SHOULD or should NOT have been done in this case. As a deacon for nearly 22 years, and a very active and committed lay person for at least as many years before that, I can attest to seeing even crazier things happen, some which would put this little tale to shame! I'm sure many of you can do the same. But for now, just enjoy it!
2) What I particularly enjoy is how the priest and the deacon work together on this one! Would that we always had this kind of good collaboration!
Now -- enjoy! Here's the story. . . .
