Don't mess with little old German ladies...

There was once a hard headed German lady of my acquaintance who had belonged to St. Edward's (the German parish) for most of her life and all of her adult life. In her Golden years, the diocese built a Cathedral and rezoned her so that she would now be in the Cathedral's parish rather than St. Edward's. This woman was NOT happy about this change her parish family was at St. Edward's her parents had been married at St. Edward's, she had made her First Communion and Confirmation there, her parents funeral masses had been said at St. Edward's. It was home to her. This little old lady called the Cathedral and the Diocese offices to try to get an exemption so that she could continue to go to St. Edward's. Her requests were denied. She did what any good Catholic would do. She attended mass at the Cathedral every day as was her wont, but she did it so that she would be taking up the seat that could have been used by someone who would have paid their tithes to the Cathedral. The diocese said she had to attend Mass at the Cathedral but they didn't say anything about her tithes (although it would have been implied that she pay them at the Cathedral too). This feisty little old lady continued to send her tithes to St. Edwards until the day she died. She then left her entire estate which was rather large to St. Edward's as well. Never, ever mess with determined little gray haired German ladies. They will have their cake and eat it too.

Ciao!
