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, VII

This was related to me as a true story, but to be honest, I am skeptical. Nonetheless, it is enjoyable.

In the early sixties, a brother is giving a retreat to a group of sisters. As any good speaker will do, he started by complimenting the audience, saying, "Standing up here in front of all you beautiful women, I feel like a thorn among the roses."

At the end of the retreat, Mother Superior rose to thank Brother, as was the custom:

"Brother, you may be a thorn among the roses, but we didn't feel your prick."

Yes, Pog. Some stories are just meant to be.
Sorry, Moobs. Shall I issue warnings to cover all keyboards and other sensitive electronics in the future?
