Time once more for another one of Father Hardy’s heavenly adventures. Today we find Father Hardy once again greeting parishioners after Mass. Mary Clancy is crying.
Father Hardy: Why, Mary Clancy, why are you crying?
Mary: Oh, Father, I've got terrible news! Me husband passed away last night!
Father Hardy: Oh, Mary, that is terrible news. I should have been there to deliver the Last Rites. Why didn’t you call me?
Mary: I did call ya, Father. But ya mumbled somethin’ about a full house and hung up. I figured you were entertainin’ guests.
Father Hardy: Oh, yes, ‘tis true, I did have people over. And just so’s you know, it wasn’t very entertainin’. They walked off with 500 dollars from the collection pla – that is, I mean, 500 holy cards from the vestibule. Anyways, I’d like to make it up to ya. Tell me, Mary, did he have any last requests?
Mary: That he did, Father.
Father Hardy: Maybe I can make things right for ya. What did he ask, Mary?
Mary: Well, Father, he said, “Please, Mary, put down that damn gun...”
Be with us next time when Father Hardy attempts to barbecue over a burning bush.
