It was Friday and as usual, Heikki was grilling venison. But, as it turns out, all of Heikki's neighbors were Catholic. And since it was Lent, they were forbidden to eat meat on Friday. But the delicious aroma of grilled venison wafted over the neighborhood and caused such a problem for the faithful that they decided to talk to their priest.

The priest came over to visit Heikki and suggested that he become a Catholic. Since Heikki really liked his neighbors, he decided to become a Catholic. After attending classes, and much study, Heikki attended Mass. At the Mass, the priest sprinkled holy water over Heikki and said: "You were born a Lutheran, raised as a Lutheran, but now you are Catholic."

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

There stood Heikki, clutching a small bottle of holy water, which he sprinkled over the grilling venison and chanted, "You were born a deer, you were raised as a deer, but now you are a walleye."
