  • The Bishop
  • The Bishop was out golfing on a beautiful Sunday. St Peter and Jesus were looking down on him from above. St Peter asked Jesus, "Isn't he supposed to be in Church today, with a few meetings after that?"

    Jesus just smiled a bit and continued to watch. The Bishop was having a wonderful day of golfing and was about to have his best day ever. Finally it happened. The Bishop came to a par 5 dog leg hole. Tall Trees made a direct shot impossible.

    The Bishop thought of how wonderful a day he was having and considered his score closely. He resigned himself to trying the shot and knowing if he went over par, he would still have a fair enough day. 

    He lined up facing the trees and swung with everything he had. As the ball shot towards the tress, he quickly figured it was not going to make it. 

    Suddenly a breeze came up and the ball miraculously cleared the trees and continued on it's course. As sudden as the wind came up, it stopped. The ball dropped and rolled onto the green and into the hole making a hole in one!

    St Peter was astonished at this! He slowly raised one eyelid and turn to Jesus. "Really? You actually did that?" 

    Jesus replied, "Who is he going to tell?"

  • The priest and a Rabbi
  • A Priest and a Rabbi were sitting next to each other on an airplane. After a while, the Priest turned to the Rabbi and asked, “Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?” The Rabbi responded, “Yes, that is still one of our laws.” The Priest then asked, “Have you ever eaten pork?” To which the Rabbi replied, “Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and tasted a ham sandwich.” The Priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading. A while later, the Rabbi spoke up and asked the Priest, “Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?” The Priest replied, “Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.” The Rabbi then asked him, “Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?” The Priest replied, “Yes, Rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke my faith.” The Rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silent, thinking, for about five minutes. Finally, the Rabbi said, “Beats of a ham sandwich, doesn't it?”

  • I think if I was the Bishop I would have to tell and just suffer the consequences. A hole in one is to hard to get...even though he had no witnesses you know a Bishop is not going to lie. I think the congregation would understand.
