vertical line See some Catholics have little conservatives. I had an appointment today at 9.00 am with a phone line socket man, a troubleshooter of electronic communication problems. He didn't turn up until 10.30 am. Anyway I said, "I thought you'd forgotten about me." "No, no," he laughed, "I got delayed, delayed by deliveries." "Deliveries? What kind of deliveries?" "Oh, just deliveries." "Oh." "Yes."

vertical line Religion will mask the face of God.

A self-labelled non-Catholic of past years, under closer examination revealed this 'non' went much much deeper and included not just all Christian denominations, but 'the works, Buddha, Goddha, the lot.' But then he said, "I was introduced to this Catholic dude who became my mentor." "Eh?" "Yeah, I liked him and we got to know each other really well and he said something, nothing really, and...I couldn't speak."

vertical line Oh ok, so where am I? While you think about it here's more:

So anyway, he says, "I was brought up by these Christians who hated the world, everyone in it and everything on sight, you know, Christian Separatists frightened to death of Jesus, so I thought bugger this, I'll hate Christians as well, seemed logical - anti-like. Years later, I was worn out, desiccated crispy. And I found myself thinking about an article I'd read in a magazine where this Buddhist is talking about 'listening to God'. I thought what the hell is that all about?"

vertical line "And I meet Thich Nhat Hanh and I'm thinking, this guy is a living saint - he says, 'It appears the Pope does not understand the Trinity' - so I think er yes, I want to be a Buddhist, and I meet him again and again and after I live with him for a while, I come to see how his life transcends all talk and speculation about oneness, and the intellectual possibility of separation."

In a world of suffering and monkey minded consumerism any group who speaks of compassion is welcome. The history of Buddhism is not without corruption and bad acts. Take what is good and leave the rest. Judge not, less you will be judged. MU

Quote: "Bless me father for I have sinned? Ah, we don't see a problem here? "
.........

Take the good and leave the rest.

 

Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose woman.

The priest asks, "Is that you, little Timmy Shaughnessy?

"Yes, Father, it is."

"And, who was the woman you were with?"

"I can't be tellin' you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation."

"Well, Timmy, I'm sure to find out sooner or later, so you may as well
tell me now. Was it Brenda O'Malley?"

"I cannot say."

"Was it Patricia Kelly?"

"I'll never tell."

"Was it Sheilah O'Brien?"

"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."

"Was it Kathleen Morgan?"

"My lips are sealed."

"Was it Fiona Grogan, then?"

"Please, Father, I cannot tell you."

The priest sighs in frustration. "You're a steadfast lad, Timmy
Shaughnessy, and I admire that. But you've sinned, and you must atone.
You cannot attend church mass for three months. Be off with you now."

Timmy walks back to his pew.

His friend Sean slides over and whispers, "What'd you get?"

"Three month's holiday and five good leads!"
