Caption Contest #37



Caption away in the midrash box.

UPDATE! We have winners (but they were all good!):

Angela: "No, Charlie, when I said God would open a window, this is not what I meant."

Beez: In a clever move, Father O'Malley figured out how to fill all those niches left vacant in the 1970s and not spend a dime. Now parishioners of Our Lady of Perpetual Help take turns as statues. Here we see Levi, patron of priests and blue jeans.

See, I'll make a great saint. Check out how good my statue will look.

Because stone statues are considered so passe, the church installed the latest examples of "living saints".

**************************

Which reminds me of a joke:
A Protestant asked why Catholics worshiped statues. An old deacon piped up and said, "Oh we don't worship statues any more; now we worship banners."
(Obviously not the way to enlighten the Protestant, but it does make the Catholics roll on the floor.)

Martin mistakes the invitation to come and celebrate November 1st: "All Saints, Martin, I said ALL Saints."

Sanctus Belle said...

"O Lord please, can you send ravens with food for me like to did for St. Benedict?"

Does it mean Father's Christ the King homily was especially good, or especially bad, if it causes parishioners to watch so eagerly for the return of the Son of Man?

Vladimir was dashed to hear that he was too old to become an altar boy and had to be talked down from the belfry.

Michael decided that if the choir sang "On Eagle's Wings" one more time he would find out if the angels really would bear him up.

I asked for a room with a view, and got this! Wait 'til I get my hands on my travel agent!

I finally found my "niche" in life. Hooray for me!
