Overheard in the Parish Office

Priest: Have you picked the readings from Sacred Scripture for your wedding?

Bride: Not yet. I just don't want that one that everybody has, you know, 'love is jealous..."

Priest: I think it says, 'love is not jealous.'

Groom: [laughs]

another improbable question: My Dad and I were standing in the rear of church waiting for the wedding march to begin. I was all decked out in my wedding finery. He said: Are you sure you want to get married!!!!?????

uhhhhhh, do you think we can stop this now????????? Of course, I was ready to get married. But i had to chuckle...

I reckon he was thinking of:

"Love is strong as death,
jealousy as relentless as Sheol.
The flash of it is a flash of fire,
a flame of the Lord himself.
Love no floods can quench,
no torrents drown."
-Song of Songs 8:6-7

but I reckon you know that!

Blessed Eastertide, Father!
