'If you're going to do a thing, you should do it thoroughly. If you're going to be a Christian, you may as well be a Catholic.'
Muriel Spark

A joke our family's priest friend Father Brendan Smyth told in his sermon at my sister's wedding. A boy is being catechised before being confirmed. 'What is matrimony?' 'A place where souls go for a while to atone for their sins.' Priest: 'No, that's purgatory'. Bishop: 'Leave him alone. He might be right. What do you or I know about it?'
