An important part of the spreading of the Gospel is the image we leave behind. Whenever we visit, there is an impression hard to forget. I remember a woman who told me once:- Oh I will never forget Father So-and-so! He was so saintly…! He didn’t almost eat…The problem is that she remarked this fact at lunch…I leave you with a joke that has to do with the subject. Hope you enjoy the anecdote SOME PEANUTS FOR A SNACK…
Some Peanuts for a snack A Catechist visits an elderly woman from his Parish church. As he sits on the couch he notices a large bowl of peanuts on the coffee table.
«No, not at all» the woman replied.
They chat for an hour and as the Catechist stands to leave, he realizes that instead of eating just a few peanuts, he emptied most of the bowl.
«Oh that’s all right» the elderly woman says.
«Ever since I lost my teeth all I can do is suck the chocolate off them.»
