Reverend Father Robert just loved to play golf. He tried to play every
weekend if his schedule allowed him. Then, during the summer of 2007,
strong rains took over the area every day for months. Every Saturday
morning the preacher would wake up and it would still be raining out.
Then one Sunday morning, Robert woke up and the sun was out.
Not a cloud in sight and it was a cool 75 degrees outside. He decided
he just had to go play golf today. He called up the Associate Pastor
and told him that he wasn't feeling well and asked if he could fill in
for him. The Associate Pastor gladly said yes and wish him to get
well soon. It was then, Robert loaded up his clubs and set off for a
golf course that was 50 miles away. This way, he was sure not to run
into anyone he knew.
Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was
Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!
At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while
looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not
going to let him get away with this, are you?"
The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not. "
Just then Father Robert hit the ball and it shot straight toward
the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole.
It was a 400 yard hole in one!
St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why
did you let him do that?"
The Lord smiled and replied,"Who is he going to tell?"
