Women 1: "There was a Priest who was giving a sermon to kids about hell? Can you believe it?"
Women 2 and 3: "Oh no, what a shock."
Women 1: "I know, can you really believe it? I am thinking, these are little kids, why are you talking to them about that? The proper approach is to teach them that God is a loving Father who will embrace them with a big hug at the time of their deaths."
Women 2: "You are right. My mother had the same old fashioned view since that's how tough the Church was regarding these matters in the old days."
Women 1, 2, and 3: All shake their head as if lamenting that past generations had to suffer with priests who were not cowards.
I was so close to blurting out the truth regarding these matters but since they were old and I did not see that it was fit to destroy their preconceived motions in such a delicate environment. I must also remember, it is the Year of Mercy, is it not?
How the hell could I ever forget?
