Sister Mary, who worked for a home health agency, was out making her rounds visiting homebound patients, when her car ran out of gas.
As luck would have it, a gas station was just a block away, so she walked to the station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas.
The attendant told her that the only gas can he owned had been loaned out, but she could wait until it was returned if she wanted.
Since the nun was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car.
She looked for something in her car that she could fill with gas and spotted the bedpan that she was taking to the patient.
Always resourceful, she carried the bedpan to the gas station, filled it with gas, and carefully carried the full bedpan back to her car.
As she was pouring the gas into her tank, two men watched from across the street.
One of them turned to the other and said, “If that car starts, I’m turning Catholic”.
