Wanna hear a joke?
How many Catholics does it take to change a light bulb?

None. We use candles.


Oh, where are the snows of yesteryear!

A very wise Pastor went to get a haircut. The barber was a parishioner, and as he cut the Priest's hair, he explained why he didn't believe in tithing. He said ' I don't think we should have to promise to give money to God. We should give what our heart tells us at the time. I like to be able to just put into the collection basket whatever I have that week.' (Which was usually nothing.)

The Pastor listened carefully and after his haircut handed the barber a one dollar bill for the ten dollar trim, saying, 'I like to give whatever my heart tells me - just whatever I have in my pocket at the time.'

'Father!', the barber protested, 'I couldn't pay my rent, take care of my expenses, and run my business if everyone would do that!'

'Neither can God's Church,' the Pastor replied.
