Friends of Whom?
At an Easter mass, at which some young ladies were to take
their final vows to become nuns, the presiding bishop
noticed two Baptist pastors enter the church just before the mass
They were seated at the back of the sanctuary and insisted
on sitting on the right side of the center aisle.
The bishop wondered why they had come but didn’t have time
to inquire before the mass began. When it came time for some
announcements, his curiosity got the best of him. He
announced that he was delighted to see two Baptist pastors in their
midst at the mass but, was curious as to why they were
present at this occasion where the young ladies were to
become the “brides of Christ.”
The eldest of the pastors slowly rose to his feet and
explained, “Family of the Groom.”
