SVD JOKES #23: THANKS! THANKS! January 23, 2009

Posted by Fr. Felmar Castrodes Fiel, SVD in Jesus, Postulancy, SVD Jokes.

When I was a postulant, I remembered very well a serious sermon from an SVD deacon which turned out to be a light moment for all of us gathered. This deacon asked us to look at the cross and try to see the letters on it aside from the INRI.
Then, he himself answered that from the cross we can see the letter T and Y – which, according to him, means “thank you.” Then, he looked around the chapel for a cross to illustrate his point. To his great surprise, the cross we had in the chapel was only a wooden cross without the image of crucified Jesus (which formed the letter Y).
Since the visual cross in our chapel only showed the letter T, the deacon immediately quipped: “Ah, your cross here only shows the letter T – that means ‘thanks!’”


I welcome contributions! Anecdotes must be funny, true stories of SVD missionaries working in the Philippines or Pinoy SVD missionaries working in any part of the globe. Contributions may be forwarded to fielsvd@yahoo.com

It needed to be ‘fixed’ – then it would become a ‘crucifix.’
