My mother who is a daily communicant had a rather unusual experience at Mass this morning when the priest came out with a bat attached to his vestment. (This happened in an eastern rite church where the celebrant faces away from the parishioners towards the altar.) Apparently, she was too scared to approach father to warn him about it and at one point in the Mass when it started flying around just before the consecration she screamed and almost fainted. Father gesticulated furiously and shewed it away. The few other parishioners in attendance were likewise scared or indifferent to the presence of this unwelcome guest. The one gentleman in the pews was very nonchalant; when advised about the bat he replied, "Oh, is that so?" What would you have done in such a situation? Don't you think someone should have yelled out, "Hey, father, there is a bat hanging on your back!" This is the second bat in two weeks. Last week a bat fell dead at the entrance to the church as someone opened the door. Isn't it unusual to see bats out and about in the daytime? Should father be advised to see a doctor as he has been in direct contact with a live bat? Could this bat be rabid? After falling down with laughter listening to my poor mother I wonder if this could be more serious.

Yep, that's about it.  Seven years later it's still hilarious.  :pointlaff:
