One sunny day, Father Ted is driving his car down a small country road, when he suddenly spots a nun waiting at a bus stop. Always one to lend a helping hand, he pulls over and offers her a lift.
The young nun thanks him, puts her luggage in the trunk, and sits down in the passenger seat next to the priest.
The poor priest can’t believe his eyes when he turns to introduce himself to the nun. She is amazingly beautiful, and for once, the priest is lost for words.
“Hello, I’m sister Grace,” she says, visibly amused at his reaction to her.
“H-h-hello, I’m father Ted,” the priest says. He can feel the blood rushing to his face, making it beet red.
Even though barely any words had been said, there was this feeling of strong attraction, as if they had known each other for years. The priest, slightly disoriented by the experience, decides that it’s time to get going.
As they set off, the nun shifts to fasten her seat belt, and her gown opens slightly to reveal a lovely leg. The priest glances down and nearly has an accident.
After getting the car under control, he can’t help but put his hand on her knee, slowly sliding it up her leg.
Father, do you remember the psalm?
The nun looks at him and immediately says, “Father, remember psalm 129.”
The priest gets flustered and apologizes profusely. He forces himself to remove his hand. However, he is unable to remove his eyes from her leg. Further on, while changing gear, he lets his hand slide up her leg again.
“What am I doing?”
The nun once again says, “Father, remember psalm 129.”
Once again the priest apologize, “Sorry, sister, but the flesh is weak.”
Runs into the church
Arriving at the convent, the nun gets out, gives him a meaningful glance and goes on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushes to retrieve a bible and looks up psalm 129.
The psalm said, “Go forth and seek, further up you will find glory.”
Moral of the story:
Always be well informed in your job, or you may miss a great opportunity!
