THE FUNNIES…..ARE GETTING FUNNIER!
Strange things happen in all our lives; sometimes we are lost for answers as to why this or that happens. Sometimes the sequence of events are uncanny. Now in the Village of FINUGE, in North County Kerry all of these things happen. Have you noticed it? Do you think that the sudden death of Fr.Williamson’s Dog, Rex was a prelude to the sudden death of the Parish Priest?
Did it amaze you that the two clocks in the church stopped at the same time; presumably
the time when the PP died in the Confessional Box?
What about the “few words” that were undertaken by a couple of the Parish Council members with the Diocesan Liturgist,Fr.Cowmeadow about the singing of Danny Boy as the Recessional song at the PP’s Funeral?
Now look at who the Bishop has appointed as the Parish Priest of Finuge? Would you believe that it is the Diocesan Liturgist? How do you think the people will respond to that? Find out in the latest posting in the FUNNIES tab at my website. Laughter is the best medicine…methinks!
A MEMO: Having spent many years as a Priest “on supply” as we say, that is looking after a Parish for a month or so, or even longer, and as a Parish Missioner, it can be a breath of fresh air for the people to have a change in priests…..but I take my hat off to the Diocesan Clergy who are in their Parishes for 6 to 12 years or even longer. The Missionary Priest is a bit like the Circus coming to town, he comes with different experiences, lots of stories etc…..but when his time is up, he is gone! The local man has to put in the hard yards.
So, check out Chapter 16 in the FUNNIES, and it will rock your sox!
