The Joys Of Priesthood…

Who’d want to be a priest?                                              If he talks finance: “ He’s fond of money.”

If the sermon is long: “He sends us to sleep.”                 If he doesn’t: He’s letting the parish run down.”

If it’s short: “He didn’t bother to prepare it.”                  If he takes his time: “He’d wear you out.”

If he raises his voice: “He’s shouting.”                           If he doesn’t: “He never listens.”

If he speaks normally: “You can’t hear him.”                 If he starts Mass on time: “His watch must be fast.”

If he’s away: “He’s always on the road.”                        If he starts a minute late: “He holds everyone up.”

If he’s at home: “He never goes anywhere.”                   If he’s young: “He has no experience.”

If he’s out visiting: “He’s never at home.”                      If he’s old: “He ought to retire.” And if he dies, or is

If he’s in the house: “He never visits the people.”          Changed: “no one could ever replace him!”
