So the wife and I were exiting the liquor store, I had my 30 pack, and she had her wine.
As soon as we got outside, our priest from our church was getting out of his car he was wearing
his black robe and collar; I told the wife, "we're going to hell honey", father said, "hello Patrick", I said "hello Father"
as he was looking at our liquor purchase. I ASSUMED he was going into the subway or maybe
the grocery store.....as I was loading up my trunk, I watched as he went straight into the
liquor store!!! The wife said, "maybe he's just getting a soda?" We sat there and he came out carrying a case
of Budweiser..... we laughed our butts off!!
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

We had a Chaplin accompany us on a westbound mission once, everyone on the crew felt a bit intimidated until we got to Clark AB and we ran into him in one of the bars. We were a bit surprised but his first comment was “Well I don’t sit in my room reading the bible all the time” come to find out after we relaxed a bit he was quite enjoyable to travel with.

Somehow, I worked in a rectory for a short time in high school. They were all VERY heavy drinkers. What else is there to do, really? At least it kept them off their feet and out of trouble.
