Silence of the Lambs.

I got this great story from a friend this weekend.

Preparation for First Holy Communion has changed a lot since our day. Nowadays the term used is "The Bread of Life". Way back then it was all about "The Body of Christ" and "The Blood of Christ". We were effectively being turned into little cannibals.

The priest went into a class of seven year olds.
"You will be receiving the Body of Christ to eat."
One little chap recoiled in horror.
"Yikes. We have to eat his full body? Even his arsehole???"

I have no idea what the priest's reaction was. But to me it was a legitimate question.
