The Reverend Francis Norton woke up Sunday morning. He realized that it was an exceptionally beautiful, sunny spring day and 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 as he snuck out of town to a golf course about 40 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, St. Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from heaven 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. It shot straight toward the pin, dropped just short of it, and 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’s he going to tell?”
