Murphy showed up at Mass one Sunday and the priest almost fell down when he saw him.
He’d never been to church in his life.
After Mass, the priest caught up with him and said,
“Murphy, I am so glad ya decided to come to Mass. What made ya come”…?
Murphy said, “I got to be honest with you Father, a while back, I misplaced my hat and I really, really love that hat.
I know that McGlynn had a hat just like mine and I knew he came to church every Sunday.
I also knew that he had to take off his hat during Mass and figured he would leave it in the back of the church.
So, I was going to leave after Communion and steal McGlynn’s hat”…
The priest said, “Well, Murphy, I notice that ya didn’t steal McGlynn’s hat. What changed your mind”…?
