O'leary And The Rector

A Protestant rector invited O'Leary to see his parish church, a building

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

perceive, Mr. O'Leary, said he, that, different from you, we are very

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.
