LINK This Priest Has Proof That Guardian Angels Exist, and It’s Childish and Awful | Terry Firma | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

Just how self-absorbed do you have to be, as a clergyman, to find proof of the divine in this godawful story?

Here’s the short version: A priest from the Archdiocese of Boston, Kevin Staley-Joyce, is on call in the middle of the night to give last rites to a dying person.

When the call from the hospital comes, Staley-Joyce sleeps right through it. But wait! God is good! The drowsy padre wakes up all by himself about a minute later (it’s a miracle!), gets up for a drink of water, looks at his phone, sees the missed call, and speedily finds his way to the patient’s bedside.

How’s that for a happy ending?

Except for the dead body, of course.

Oh WOW, Priestie misses the call, wakes up needing a piss and drink of water to find out he has missed the call to give a dying person the Last Rites BECAUSE a "Guardian Angel" has pranked him by putting his phone on ' Silent Mode.'
The 'soul' of the dying person reaches the ' Pearly Gates ' expects entry but gets instead, "Sorry but your Visa has been rejected because you weren't given the Last Rites, but that's fine because Priestie got a good sleep and did NOT piss the bed instead."
Monty Python WHERE are you when you are really needed....LOL.


Guardian Angels were a vigilante group in NYC subways. They existed. Curtis Sliwa. All this Xtian bullshit are fairytales.
