Healing the Lame

The fools say it’s ordinary water from a natural spring, that it’s nothing special. I say it’s holy water once blessed during a visitation by Martha, sister of Fatima. Apart from a solitary farrier, there was no-one around at the time, which was disappointing for Martha and makes it difficult to have her canonised.

Nonetheless, we bottle and label around 10 000 litres of the water each day, and supply sundry places of pilgrimage around the country.

The Church refuses to have anything to do with the operation, but it works okay for me and my bank balance.

I’m no fool.

  1. Little wonder the Church wants nothing to do with it. He must not believe in the afterlife of he wouldn’t want that on his soul money or no money. He better not become ill. Good writing, Patrick. —- Suzanne

    Fun story. And a little too close to reality to make me entirely trust you Patrick… 😉

  3. Hallelujah, a wellspring of wealth….

  4. Dear Patrick,

    Do you perchance sell travel papers for Heaven as well. Good one. And good to see you back this week.
