A Funny St. Patrick Story

In the middle of the fifth century, the Irish King Aengus was baptized by St. Patrick. Sometime during the ceremony, Patrick leaned on his crozier, a sharp-pointed staff and inadvertently stabbed the poor king's foot.

After the baptism was over, St. Patrick looked down, saw all the blood, and realized what he had done.

"I'm terribly sorry!" he exclaimed. "Please forgive me, your majesty! Why did you suffer this pain in silence?"

The king replied, "I thought it was part of the ritual."
