I Can’t Resist

March 13, 2016

I’m sorry, but I really cannot resist posting this very Catholic joke today.  “If scripture will not cast out the Devil, use laughter.  For Satan cannot bear to be mocked.”  (Martin Luther)  A blessed Lent to everyone!

Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle. They said to him, “Teacher, this woman was caught  in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” They said this to test him, so that they could have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger.  But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let the one among you who is without sin  be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he bent down and wrote on the ground.  But then a stone was thrown from the back of the crowd, striking the woman in the head.  And Jesus cried out, “MOM!  I was trying to make a point!”
