on a Sunday
It seems there
was this priest who just loved to play golf, but he had been very busy for many
months and had not been able to get away to go golfing. Well, one Sunday morning
he woke up and felt he just HAD to go golfing. The weather was just beautiful.
He called up
the Bishop and claimed he had a really bad case of laryngitis and couldn't preach,
so the Bishop told him to rest for several days. He then got out his clubs and
headed off for the golf course.
He set up at
the first hole, making sure no one was there to see him playing hooky, and blasted
the ball with his wood. It was a beautiful shot! It went straight and true.
It bounced, and bounced (right up onto the green) and rolled its way closer...
and closer... a hole-in-one! The priest jumped up and down in his excitement,
praising the Lord and shouting hallelujahs!
He struts off
to the green, collects his ball, and tees off at the second hole, repeating
his performance on the first hole, much to his astounded delight.
All this time
St. Peter and God have been watching him from the gates of heaven. St. Peter
has finally seen enough to pique his curiosity. "Lord," he says, "this priest
seems to be a real trouble maker. He ignored his congregation and even lied
to go golfing. Now you reward him with a hole-in-one! Why?"
God smiles, looks
over at St. Peter, and says, "I'm punishing him." St. Peter looks very confused
and asks God for an explanation. God replies, "Well, after he finishes his game
by himself, who can he tell his story to?"
