Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

Legenda Fratrum, Pars II

Brother X introduces himself to a busy, new parish volunteer....

Bro. X: Hi, I'm Brother X.
Mrs. Y: Hi, Brother. I'm Mrs. Y. I'm copulating this evening.
Bro. X: {cough cough} Umm... I... umm.... What?
Mrs. Y: Copulating. I'm copulating this evening.
Bro. X: That's umm.... Well, I mean, umm.... Oh.
Mrs. Y (more slowly): You know, on children's religious education night, one of us is in charge of making photocopies for the teachers. I am copy lady this evening.

this is what you get for calling yourself Brother X. She probably thought you were called Brother Sex and somewhere there's a blogpost from a volunteer describing an embarrassing incident with a Brother...

I presume that if education night is once a month she was also menstruating.

Heather: I suppose people hear what they want to hear.
Moobs: That will be 3 Our Father's, 3 Hail Mary's and 3 Glory Be's.

Oh, good Lord. She must be the same woman who once told me, "My consensus of opinion is..." She also wanted to "corroborate" with me on a book.

I'm happy to know she's found gainful employment as a copulator.
