Only In Ireland – Priest Comes Up With Novel Way to Prevent Parishioners Getting the Flu

Just us, or did it get a little hotter in the church?

Regular mass-goers will know that in a small community, that Sunday service can be your only chance at a bit of talent spotting in the week. The Saw Doctors even sang about it once: kneeling down there and watching her pass. The glory of a mass, so to speak.

Well, one Irish priest may have decreased his parishioners’ chances of contracting flu this winter, but we suspect he might also have increased their chances of scoring. The unnamed Father issues his flock a directive to skip shaking hands this pass weekend, and instead give each other a little wink.

Sowing the seeds of love in the house of the Lord. Bless.
