"I have used the mon? ey, the $2 for something else. So you pay --you buy--get a Mass for me, and I'll bother you no more." It has happened. (Is that right?) Yeah, it has happened. It has happened, yeah. (Remarkable.) Yeah, remarkable. 539-4413 539-4415 "GOOD DEALS ON GOOD CARS!" Located on the Sydney - Glace Bay Highway 1/2 mile before U.C.C.B. (I heard a story once, but I don't know much about it, about a church--I think it was near Christmas Island or something like that. And a light was seen in that church. And a priest who had died was seen in that church, saying masses that he hadn't finished before he died. Do you know of this?) It wasn't Christmas Island. There was a church--I just don't know whether it was on the other side. Boularderie side, or out St. Peters--it doesn't matter. (But you do remember this.) There was a church. And now, many's the time we find fault with young people being bad. You know, there'll be a little harm in them, they'll be doing little things. But we have no control--we do not know God's plan.

He used to steal the money out of the poor box, out of the box at the church. But everything, too, has a pur? pose, you never know. So, anyway, the priest caught on that he was taking--the money was going. And they pinned it on him. And he was the fellow that was taking the money, this young fellow. So the priest said to him, "You have to now," he said, "stay three nights in the church, as punishment, alone." Well, there is no place more lonelier than to be in a church all night by your? self, from sunset until sunrise in the morning. So the first night he spent there. And he was quite frightened. But he stayed in the back seat. But he couldn't get out--the doors were locked. So at 12, ex? actly 12, the priest came to the altar. Well, at those times--and long af? ter- -Mass could not be said until after 12, 'cause you'd have to be in day? light- -you could not say Mass in the afternoon. It would have to be in the morning. And it couldn't be until after 12 again. So the lights, the candles, they lit up. (They lit up.) Oh, yes, they lit up. (By themselves.) By themselves. Priest came to the altar. 65
