Telling the Truth...
Submitted by Maynard S. Clark - 10 Sep 2003
There were two wicked brothers. They were rich, and used their money to keep their evil ways from the public eye. They attended the same church, and outwardly appeared quite righteous...
Then, their priest retired, and a new one was hired. Not only could he see right through these two cads, but he also spoke the truth in love, and the parish started to grow.
Suddenly, one of the brothers died. The remaining brother sought out the new priest the day before the funeral and handed him a check for the amount needed to finish paying for the new building.
"I have only one condition," he said. "At my brother's funeral, you must say my brother was a saint." The priest gave his word, and deposited the check.
At the funeral, the priest spoke passionately. "This was an evil man," he said. "He cheated on his wife and abused his family."
After going on in this vein for some time, he concluded, "But, compared to his brother... he was a saint."
