John Smith was the sole Protestant to settle in the predominantly Catholic area.
On the first Friday of Lent, John was outdoors on his grill, preparing a large delicious steak. Meanwhile, his neighbors were all having cold tuna fish for dinner. This happened every Friday throughout Lent.
The neighborhood men came together on the last Friday of Lent and decided that something had to be done about John since he was luring them to eat meat every Friday of Lent and they couldn’t stand it any longer. They planned to convert him to Catholicism. They went over to chat with him and were overjoyed when he decided to join the rest of his neighbors and become a Catholic.
They took him to church and the priest poured some water over him and told him “Your were born a Baptist, you were raised a Baptist and now you are a Catholic”. The males in the area were overjoyed since their biggest Lent temptation had been eliminated.
Lent came around again the following year. The first Friday of Lent arrived, and just as the community was settling down to their fish meals, the wafting aroma of steak frying on a barbecue arrived. The males in the area couldn’t believe their eyes! What was the situation? They contacted each other and agreed to meet in John’s yard to check if he had forgotten it was Lent Friday.
The group arrived just in time to see John standing over his grill with a small pitcher of water. He was pouring small droplets over his steak on the grill and saying, “You were born a cow, you were raised a cow, and now you are a fish.”
