Turning Water Into Punch-Line

, , , , , | Friendly | May 7, 2018

(I recently reconnected with the Catholic priest from my childhood parish. He is also one of the few Catholic priests I know who does not care for alcohol due to alcoholism negatively affecting his own family. One evening, he comes for a visit and enters my kitchen.)

Priest: “Well, [My Name], what is that in the corner there?”

(He points to a large bottle of wine as he raises his eyebrows at me.)

Me: “Father, that’s water, but Jesus was here, so it might be wine now!”

(He just laughed and clapped me on the shoulder.)
