Three holy men and a bear

A Catholic Priest, a Baptist Preacher and a Rabbi all served as Chaplains to the students of Northern
Michigan University at Marquette in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop.

One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't really all that hard, a real challenge

would be to preach to a bear.

One thing led to another, and they decided to do an experiment. They would all go out into the woods,

find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to convert it to their religion.

Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their experiences.

Father Flannery, who had his arm in a sling, was on crutches, and had various bandages on his body and

limbs, went first.

'Well,' he said, 'I went into the woods to find me a bear. And when I found him, I began to read to him from

the Catechism.

Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with me and began to slap me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy

water, sprinkled him and, Holy Mary Mother of God, he became as gentle as a lamb. The Bishop is coming
out next week to give him first communion and confirmation.'

Reverend Billy Bob spoke next. He was in a wheelchair, had one arm and both legs in casts, and had an

IV drip.

In his best fire-and-brimstone oratory, he exclaimed, 'WELL, brothers, you KNOW that we Baptists don't

sprinkle! I went out and I FOUND me a bear. And then I began to read to my bear from God's HOLY WORD!
But that bear wanted nothing to do with me.

So I took HOLD of him and we began to wrestle. We wrestled down one hill, UP another and DOWN

another until we came to a creek. So I quickly DUNKED him and BAPTI ZED his hairy soul. And just like
you said, he became as gentle as a lamb. We spent the rest of the day praising Jesus. Hallelujah!

The Priest and the Reverend both looked down at the Rabbi, who was lying in a hospital bed. He was in

a body cast and traction with IVs and monitors running in and out of him. He was in really bad shape.

The Rabbi looked up and said: "Looking back on it, ....circumcision may not have been the best way to

start..."
