God on Our Side

At school today, my fourth block class was wound up. With ten minutes left in the day, and a big basketball game tonight, they were not deeply concerned about studying for the test on the Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching I will be giving them Tuesday.

"Are you going to the game, Sister?" they asked.
"Sorry, but I have to get back to the monastery tonight."
"You should bring all the nuns to the game! We could have a whole section of just nuns. Then we'd know we really have God on our side."

Hmm. Perhaps. When it comes to high school basketball, do you think God hears nuns' prayers more than those of the regular screaming fans? We ALL are the Church.
