My Granny

This post is kind of coming out of left field, and is a result of a conversation I just had with a co-worker. Follow the segue:

me: hey, check out my "stigmata"

her: huh??? what the hell???

me: stabbed myself last week in the middle of my hand catching a pencil

her: you know, scientifically speaking they would had to bang the nails through his wrists, not his hands and another thing, we are missing a few days between Good Friday and Easter Sunday if it took three days to go on the cross, die and resurrect

me: yup, I know and he was also probably born in August, not December --- when they were trying to convert the world to Christianity they took some poetic license to draw the crowds, so to speak

her: someone went to Sunday School

me: sort of, but my granny went to Mass every day and if you were on her "list", you were golden. In fact, Oprah did a story on her a few years ago, after she died

her: really? that's cool

me: yup, and my dad still can't watch it. I'll send you the link

Thank you for sharing this touching tale, Finn. I'm also fascinated with stigmatas and would love to see the topic covered more widely - THANK YOU!

I look forward to reading more of your heartfelt posts...
