Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

St Jude goes deaf, reads local paper.

Saw this ad in the local paper's classifieds:

"Thank you St Jude for answering my prayers. Michelle, Glenbrook."

From this I deduce that St Jude heard Michelle's prayers and that he answered them; but she felt that he could not hear her prayer of thanks, and so, somehow knowing that St Jude was an avid reader of the local rag, she placed the ad.

Makes perfect sense to me...

Well, if you put it like that, of course it seems ridiculous. However, she might have earlier placed an ad in the same paper seeking St Jude's help. In which case, if he did intervene, her belief that he does read the classifieds in the local rag would be perfectly justified.

Mind you, if Michelle only advertised in the local rag, she's seeking a miracle on the cheap, isn't she. I'm sure St Jude must read the SMH; doesn't everyone?

I think that the Catholic church encourages parishioners who believe they have received St Jude's help to publicise the fact, since this is good for recruitment, but where this tradition of classified ads comes from I don't know.

Andrew, I feel that Jude is one of the lesser saints and therefore must make do with the local rag.

Lemmiwinks, I western "civilisation" went mad ages ago. N o one noticed, and so what we call "normal" these days is actually a gaggle of mental illnesses flying in tight formation.
any sane p[erson is immedialtey deemed mentally ill and "treated" by insane shrinks.

Davo, try and have faith.
