True Lent (Boudreaux) Style
Each Friday night after work, Boudreaux would fire up his outdoor
grill and cook a venison steak. But, all of Boudreaux's neighbors were
Catholic... and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat
on Friday. The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was
causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally
talked to their priest.
The priest came to visit Boudreaux, and suggested that he become a
Catholic. After several classes and much study, Boudreaux attended
Mass.. and as the priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said, "You
were born a Baptist, and raised a Baptist, but now you are a Catholic."
Boudreaux's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived,
and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood.
The priest was called immediately by the neighbors, and, as he rushed
into Boudreaux's yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him,
he stopped and watched in amazement. There stood Boudreaux,
clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully sprinkled over
the grilling meat and chanted, "You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised a
deer, but now you is a catfish."
