Born a Lutheran
Each Friday night after work, Ole would fire up his outdoor grill on
the shore of Big Stone Lake and cook a venison steak. But, all of Ole's
neighbors were Catholic... And since it was Lent, they were
forbidden from eating meat on Friday..
The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks wafted over
Ortonville all the way to Clinton, and was causing such a problem for the
Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.
The Priest came to visit Ole, and suggested that he become a
Catholic.After several classes and much study, Ole attended Mass.....and as the
priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said, "You were born a Lutheran,
and raised a Lutheran, but now you are a Catholic."
Ole's neighbors were relieved, until Friday night arrived, and the
wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood.
The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors, and, as he rushed
into Ole's yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped
and watched in amazement.
There stood Ole, clutching a small bottle of holy water which he
carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted: "You vuz born a deer,
you vuz raised a deer, but now you is a walleye."
