Holy Water

Jerry, a highlander from Rapides Parish in central Louisiana, was an older,
single gentleman who was born and raised a Baptist, living in South
Louisiana .

Each Friday night after work, he would fire up his outdoor grill and cook a
venison steak. Now, all of Jerry's neighbors were Catholic.....and since it
was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Fridays. The delicious
aroma from the grilled venison steaks was causing such a problem for the
Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.

The priest came to visit Jerry, and suggested that Jerry convert to

After several classes and much study, Jerry attended Mass... and as the
priest sprinkled holy water over Jerry, he said, "You were born a Baptist
and raised a Baptist, but now you are Catholic."

Jerry's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived, and the
wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood.

The priest was called immediately by the neighbors and, as he rushed into
Jerry's yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold Jerry, he stopped in
amazement and watched. There stood Jerry, clutching a small bottle of water
which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat, and chanted: "You were
born a deer, and raised a deer, but now you are a catfish."
