Divine Dousing with the Dynamic Duo

While blessing homes as a Mission priest in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee … I was younger, a good bit hairier, about 40 pounds heavier, and still as foolish.

In those days I would often read other church bulletins where there was, invariably, a note announcing house blessings which ended with the words:

DO NOT FEED THE PRIEST!

Back then I always found that admonition odd … after all, in a small parish or mission setting, a priest may only have 10, 20, or 30 homes to bless over a two month period (from Theophany to the Great Fast) – and many times the families want the priest’s whole family to enjoy a meal. Believe me, it can be done!

And, hey … ya gotta eat … so why not feed the priest?

If you are a priest or parishioner in such a smaller setting, you know it can be a blessing.

But, I currently live in Houston.

Ladies and gentlemen, enter the Dynamic Duo …
