Running in Memphis

posted 03/03/08

SH and I had our last pre-marital counseling session with Fr Joe. (In the letter he gave us, he referred to the “pre-Cannon” process.) It was just one of many things we had to get done this week – we are in the throes of “It’s our last Saturday/Sunday/Monday in Memphis; we need to go to Elmwood Cemetery/visit the Rock and Soul Museum/go to the Civil Rights Museum/eat at The Cupboard/El Mezcal/Central BBQ again.”

Father Joe was his usual funny self. Talking about how the wife shouldn’t interrupt the husband during a basketball game, he said,

In Chicago, some priests pray for “Please let the Bears to win the Superbowl.” When the Cardinal hear this, he say, “Come to my office.”
