O'leary And The Rector

Irish Humour Home

remarkable for its architectural beauty. While the friar was viewing the
building, the rector thought he was contrasting its nakedness with the
interior beauty of the Roman Catholic churches, and observed: You

sparing of ornaments in our churches; we have neither paintings nor
statuary to attract the worshipper's attention. Ah! replied O'Leary,
with an arch smile, you are young housekeepers, you know.
