A bit of humor that's on the edge... but the writer in me couldn't resist!

For all my grammatically correct friends.

On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife.


The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.


After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation, handed his ticket to the medicine man and wondered what he was in for.


The old man handed a potion to him, and with a grip on his shoulder, warned,"This is a powerful medicine. You take only a  teaspoonful and then say '1-2-3.' "


When you do, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life and you can perform as long as you want."


The  man was encouraged.  As he walked away, he turned and asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?"
 
"Your partner must say '1-2-3-4,'" he responded, "but when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon."


He was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom.


When she came in, he took off his clothes and said, "1-2-3!"  Immediately, he was the manliest of men.


His wife was excited and began throwing off her clothes and then she asked "What was the 1-2-3 for?"


And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition, because we
could end up with a dangling participle.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
