Poetic Justice on a Sunday Morning

Plying golf on a Sunday morning is not always rewarding

Hole in One

Hole in One

Father Norton woke up this Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early fall day. He decided he just had to play golf.

So… he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that morning.

As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out to the Amelia Island Plantation golf course on the other side of the island, where he figured nobody knew him.
This way he knew he wouldn’t accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!

At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, “You’re not going to let him get away with this, are you?”

The Lord sighed, and said, “No, I guess not.”

Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell
into the hole.

IT WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE shot of a lifetime.

St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked: “How could you let him do that?”

The Lord smiled and replied, “Who’s he going to tell?”
