Kateri, felis sine
I asked Kateri if she wanted me to put blessed ashes on her forehead
this past Wednesday. She said, Why would I want you to
do that? Whats the point of it? I said, Well,
the point of it is this: If you wear ashes on your forehead,
you are telling God and the world that you are a sinner and in
need of mercy. Thats it in a nutshell! Why
would I ever do that? she said. Im not a sinner
and I dont need mercy. Well, there we are!
I said. That answers my question! You dont want any
ashes. Now, if youll excuse me, I have to go. Im
scheduled to give ashes to some sinners who are in need of mercy.
She said, What a waste of time! Priests should spend less
time with sinners and more time with cats.:
