Happy St. Patrick's Day!
A man lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a faithful pet dog for company. One day the dog died, so he went to the parish priest and asked, "Father, my dog is dead. Could you say a mass for the poor creature?" The priest replied, "I'm afraid not — we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there's no telling what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the creature." The man said, "I'll go right away Father. Do you think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?" The priest exclaimed, "Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn't you tell me your dog was Catholic?
