It was the middle of a hot summer and the air conditioning had broken down at a Catholic Church in Ireland.
So they hired Seamus O’Sullivan to crawl around in the air ducts and figure out what was wrong.
As Seamus peeked down through one of the old vents in the sanctuary, he saw little old Mrs. O’Donnell kneeling by the altar.
She appeared to be saying her rosary, and Seamus thought it would be funny to try and mess with the lady’s mind.
So, he put on his best authoritative voice and said, “This is Jesus. Your prayers will be answered”.
Well, Mrs O’Donnell even blink, she just kept on saying her prayers.
Seamus decided that maybe she didn’t hear him, and so he tried again. “This is Jesus, the Son of God! Your prayers will be answered!”
Again, Mrs O’Donnell didn’t react at all.
Mustering up a really big breath of air, Seamus decided to try again, only this time, he said it much more loudly. “THIS IS JESUS CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD! YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED!”
The old lady looks up and says, “SHUT UP! I’M TALKING TO YOUR MOTHER!”
