    Default Priestly Dilemma

    As a young man, Norton was an exceptional golfer. At the age
    of 26, however, he decided to become a priest, and joined a
    rather peculiar order. He took the usual vows of poverty,
    chastity, but his order also required that he quit golf and
    never play again. This was particularly difficult for Norton,
    but he agreed and was finally ordained a priest.

    One Sunday morning, the Reverend Father Norton woke up and
    realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early
    spring day, decided he just had to play golf.

    So… he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick
    and convinced him to say Mass for him that day. As soon as
    the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out
    of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way he
    knew he wouldn’t accidentally meet anyone he knew from
    his parish.

    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 Norton hit the ball and it shot straight
    towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and
    fell into the hole. It WAS A 420-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?”
