Do You Come Here Often?










I loved this little snippet, courtesy of Fr. Longenecker...

On observing the larger numbers for Easter one pastor wisecracked, "I have to apologise to all of you about all the lilies in Church. I wanted to get poinsettias, so it would look just like it did last time you were here..."

Heheheh...

I get the joke, but not the poinsettias. When are they used?

Mac McLernon said...

Mark, poinsettias are the traditional red-leaved plants (flowers) you see at Christmas...
;-)

Simon-Peter Vickers-Buckley said...

Father is only a spit ball away from where I live and poinsettas are very popular: they are also very beautiful plants if one treats them right.

The remark:

ouch!

So true though...but, there IS hope, if they *feel* convicted enough to come back.

May God continue to bless you (BTW)!

Fr. Dwight Longenecker said...

I forgot, poinsettas are especially popular for Christmas here in the USA. They're everywhere...
