Pope Francis: “They want me dead!” Humor.

  • Father George: “I’ve totally been successful in making sure I will never become a bishop, just in case there was a one in a million chance as time goes on.”
  • Father MacRae: “Your chances of ever becoming a bishop are less than zero, Father George.”
  • Father George: “Great!”
  • Father MacRae: “There is a greater chance that you, Father George, will be run over by a bishop in a hit and run “accident” than you stand in being appointed a bishop yourself.”

The scare-quotes of “accident” are Father Gordon’s, meaning, there’s a pretty good chance I might die in a hit and run planned out by any bishop… and therefore… there might still be some kind of chance that I become a bishop.

So, following up on that fact, at the end of the conversation, Father Gordon, my spiritual director, with the greatest of humor, said: “Keep writing, Father George!”

Father Gordon wants me dead, I guess, or at least that I make sure that I never ever become a bishop! ;-)

    Just got a mental image of you Fr. Georgr, in front of your humble abode being hit by a bishop in a Ferrari, wearing aviators, talking on his 2000 dollar phone😉

    He wants, for you, what we all should want; entrance into Heaven. But you know that already! I must say that your SD is a perfect fit for you – and you for he. The Lord sent, to Father G, another soul in dire need of direction!
