So I'm trying to prep for manuscript writing and my former charismatic, praying in tongues, pro-choice, NO Catholic, "lector" Mom calls to tell me about her 50 year reunion in D.C for joining the Peace Corps .
"Not surprising", you say.
But wait! She then relates how one of her Peace Corps friends (who has 12 kids - "Isn't that great! And she's so happy too!") took her to mass at some Arlington, VA NO church that uses incense and says the Leonine prayers after mass. She couldn't stop talking about how great that was. I'm starting to think "What planet am I on? Am I actually awake? Is someone playing a joke on me?" Not so much. As it turns out, she was just getting warmed up, because then she started talking about Sr. Lucy and what the Third Secret REALLY said. At this point I practically lost consciousness, because I've never even mentioned Fatima to my mother. Clearly this can't ACTUALLY be happening. There has to be a rational explanation for it.
The only conclusion I could come to was that one of you Fish Eaters has been secretly in communication with my mother. So all I need to know now is WHICH ONE OF YOU IS IT?
(And whoever it is, Thanks!)
