A Catholic Horse Racing Joke

Someone sent me this Catholic Horse Racing Joke via email that I’d like to share. Good Catholics should be able to understand it. If not, you’ve got to do some research. Enjoy!

A Catholic Horse Racing Joke
(Author Unknown)

One day while he was at the track betting on the ponies and nearly losing his shirt, Mitch noticed a priest who stepped out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race. Lo and behold, that horse - a very long shot - won the race.

Mitch was most interested to see what the priest did the next race.

Sure enough, he watched the priest step out onto the track as the horses for 5th race lined up, and place a blessing on the forehead of one of the horses.

Mitch made a beeline for the window and placed a small bet on the horse.

Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse the priest had blessed won the race.

Mitch collected his winnings and anxiously waited to see which horse the priest bestowed his blessing on for the 6th race.

As the day went on, the priest continued blessing one of the horses, and it always came in first.

Mitch began to pull in some serious money, and by the last race, he knew his wildest dreams were going to come true. He made a quick stop at the ATM, withdrew his savings and awaited the priest's blessing that would tell him which horse to bet on.

True to his pattern, the priest stepped out onto the track before the last race and blessed the forehead, eyes, ears and hooves of one of the horses.

Mitch bet every cent, and watched the horse come in dead last. Mitch was dumbfounded. He made his way to the track and when he found the priest, he demanded, "What happened, Father? All day you blessed horses and they won. The last race, you blessed a horse and he lost. Now I've lost my savings too, thanks to you!!"

The priest nodded wisely and said, “That's the problem with most Non-Catholics, they can't tell the difference between a simple blessing and the Last Rites; and I’ll bet some Catholics don’t know that either”.

Breakdancing starts with Top Rock while moving on to Down Rock
Transiting on to Power Moves, climaxing in The Freeze
He practices precision moves with discipline & grace
He keeps the rhythm flowing with the task he has to face.

A Breakdancer learns discipline while having his fun
It’s not what he’ll get, but what he’ll become
From within he seeks to bloom, a little at a time
We’ll seek to learn from life in gloom, and know that he’ll be fine

When The World Pushes You To Your Knees

When the world pushes you to your knees,
you're in the perfect position to pray. ~ Unknown

Poetry Poem

Poetry Poem

A form of art with use of language
At times discrete with hidden message
Most times with honesty displayed
For love of words that do not fade
