From the Cat at 684 S. Third .
Those of you who have had the honor to actually look at me, you know I am blessed with a most excellent black coat with white paws. Some cat fanciers call that a Tuxedo Cat. My late and dear friend, Sister Mary Francis, called me a clerical cat, and rightly so. It appears that I am in a cassock with a white clerical collar.
Ive sat in on marriage preparations, funeral plans, finance meetings and countless other appointments. I applied to the Josephinum as an adjunct professor of pastoral administration. They chose to ignore my application. I was a bit deficient in Latin. I tend to roll my Rs (I must be Italian in my lineage).
Since I cannot teach there, I will content myself instructing all of you. Father continues to tell me how well I am received naturally.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Buy some extra groceries and bring them to church for the poor. Please dont give the poor cans of hideous vegetables that you yourself hate. When you buy those extra cans, pretend youre shopping for your dear parents, and not to annoy your overbearing friends that you hope wont return for a meal for a long time.
Raphael, the Clerical Cat
