What’s the funniest thing that ever happened to you at Mass? At adoration? On retreat?
I felt a call to pray one night and so I drove down to our perpetual adoration chapel. There’s really nothing like the good night sleep you get after praying “Now you let your searvant go in peace, your word has been fulfilled…” and “Into your hands I commend my spirit” from compline.
Anyway, there were two men in the chapel and as the hour drew to a close, one got up and went through a vesibule and into the bathroom. He spent a few minutes in the restroom and then I heard him, clear as a bell, say, “Whew! That stinks!”
Another minute went by and I heard him say, “Oh my goodness!” “Wow, that was baaaad!” and such things.
I’m like, Ohhhhh Kaaaay…?
The other guy in the chapel looks at Jesus, sighs, closes his eyes, bows his head and says, “Sorry, Lord.” Then he looks at me and says, “I pray for him often.”
