Remember the priest from the Princess Bride?

Well, I have been hopping around and trying different churches since my most recent move, and at the parish I was at this morning, the priest was so much like the one from the Princess Bride that I had a really difficult time keeping a straight face.

It wasn't so bad during the earlier parts of the service, but then came the homily. Here's my attempts at phonetic transcription:

"We awww have ew-wotic thawts and feewings. These awuh natuwal, and the wesult of evowution. But we should not confuse such feewings with wuv, which is something ewse awtogethuh. Wuv is what makes us who we awuh."

I managed not to laugh or even smirk too visibly, but it was difficult, which of course made me feel bad. It didn't seem to be having any affect on the people around me, but then they:

1) are probably used to him and his speech patterns. he does seem like quite a nice priest, all in all.

2) are mostly first generation immigrants, so it seems quite likely that many of them have never seen The Princess Bride.

If the homily hadn't been all about WUV, I don't think it would have hit me nearly as hard......

My minister yesterday had a part in his Mother's Day prayer about 'giving thanks for those who bore us'.

Naturally, I started to giggle right away much to the mortification of my wife and children...
