Wisdom of a Catholic Priest “Poem”

A catholic priest holding Bible in his hands

Sitting all alone at river walk like Jesus suffering on the cross

His worn out boots showed holes in his socks wearing a worn out hat

I disturbed his prayers for a conversation

Christian principle he told me is to “Give something and you will always get something back”

“But not women” I replied and he laughed

We started from raskonlikov and ended on brothers karmazov

I told him he should be a professor with all his wisdom and he answers how he studied philosophy at USF

I inquired what makes him the way he is like Socrates not caring about his outward appearance

He replied, “I have been rejected by the church, by people and world as a whole except Jesus Christ”
