Catholic and Lutheran friends - this is good!


Eino was an older single gentleman who was born and
raised a Lutheran, and each Friday night after work he
would fire up his outdoor grill and cook a venison
steak.

Now all of Eino's neighbors were Catholic - and since
it was Lent they were forbidden from eating meat on
Fridays. The delicious aroma from the grilled venison
steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic
faithful that they finally talked to their priest.

The priest came to visit Eino, and suggested that Eino
convert to Catholicism. After several classes and much
study, Eino attended Mass and as the priest sprinkled
holy water over Eino, he said "You were born a
Lutheran and raised a Lutheran, but now you are
Catholic."

Eino's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday
night arrived, and the wonderful aroma of grilled
venison filled the neighborhood. The priest was called
immediately by the neighbors and as he rushed into
Eino's yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold
Eino, he stopped in amazement and watched......

There stood Eino, clutching a small bottle of water
which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat,
and chanting:

"You were born a deer, and raised a deer, but now you
are a walleye!"


For those who don't know, a walleye is a fish here in the U.P.
