It is not an easy thing to be related to or be good friends with a priest. We are constantly looking out for things to include in our homilies in order to make the Gospels come to life.
So this past weekend I was out of state to attend my nephew's wedding. Neither the bride nor groom were Catholic so I was in attendance rather than officiating - a unique experience for me. We arrived in North Carolina just in time for the rehearsal dinner (good timing) and sat across from the minister and my sister Lor. The man was a good listener and asked lots of questions. But, as a fellow preacher at weddings, I saw the turn the conversation was having:
"Because he was trolling for information and you were giving it to him."
She didn't believe me.
"I'm telling you Lor, that's how you find things out in order to give an engaging homily. I tell you, what you were saying was being carefully catalogued away and will be revisited tomorrow."
"You are so over sensitive to these things," she said to me.
Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord.
