It was several weeks ago that I had the annual conversation with my Mother on why I don’t go to church. It is in these conversations in which I usually turn into my teenage self hanging-up the phone exclaiming, “I hate it!”
I am then left to ponder does God really need me to go to church? Am I failing in my spiritual well-being by not going? And on the off-chance of dying will I be stuck in purgatory?
I had a lot of questions on my mind as I walked to pick the boys up from school.
As I went to cross the street a Black Corolla was stopped at the crosswalk waiting to turn left, and I made eye contact with the little Nun in the driver seat ensuring it was safe to cross the busy road.
It was as I began to cross – the nun decided to press the pedal to the metal!
My life flashed before my eyes and I thought “Dear God this Nun is going to hit me! I’m going to die a heathen! Just like mother said!”
Luckily, she hit the brakes in the nick of time and did the sign of the cross.
If it was any other driver I would have flipped them the bird. But recognizing that she was praying for me I politely waved and made it safely across the street.
As I walked down the next street and crossed the lane leading into the alley way – it was the same nun turning left and aiming for me once again!
I looked to the sky and thought “You have got to be kidding me!”
Was this Nun a sign from God and my mother telling me to get my butt to church? Or was she just a blind Nun with a bad driving habit? I suspect the only one that knows the answer is the big guy in the sky.
Have you ever had a dangerous run in with a Nun?
