Happy Feast of St. Anthony of Padua!

It is the feast of the inspiration of my blog. Did you know that St. Francis wrote a letter to TonyP?

It said:
I Brother Francis send wishes of health to Brother Anthony, my bishop. It pleases me that you teach sacred theology to the brothers, as long as in the words of the Rule you "do not extinguish the Spirit of prayer and devotion" with study of this kind.
Teach and preach in the Spirit, baby.

Speaking of priest-y things, I ran into a priest-friend of mine: 
Priest: DEIRDRE! Have you eaten!?!?
Me: No, no. But I will eat.
Priest: Deirdre, you must eat!!! 
Me: I will eat at 1. I'm meeting someone for lunch.
Priest: Perhaps, I can bring you a little something from our (religious community's) lunch?!?!
Me: I'll eat! Really! I will! 
Priest: *eyes me skeptically* 
*starts walking away* 
*little old lady starts running after him to ask him a question* 
*priest proceeds to make fun of old lady's run by imitating it* 
*old lady has to stop running because she is laughing too hard*
