So Sunday I took my Irish Priest to see some Irish Priests.
But not just ANY Irish priests...
*flails madly but realizes none of you probably know what I'm talking about*
The Priests are these three Irish priests who formed a singing group and became so successful, that they've recorded albums and actually go on tour. It's incredible because they're diocesan priests, (meaning they're assigned to parishes) and have all their pastoral duties to work around.
Fr. Martin and Fr. Eugene are brothers and the third is Fr. David. They have such incredible talent, and when all three of them are singing together, it's so amazing. Getting to hear them live in our Orpheum downtown was so awesome!!
We were fully submerged in age old hymns, famous classics and of course, lots of Irish songs!
And their accents, WUAUAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHGH!! I love the Irish accent so much! Sometimes they went a little too fast for me to catch what they said, but I was loving it all the same! Can't wait to go to Ireland summer of 2016!!!
So we ran into a friend who formerly went to our parish and her daughter who was several years behind me at the school there when I went, and the daughter had attended mass at where the priests had gone that morning. Well, they'd invited her to come backstage after the show along with a few other people. So I asked her if she could see if they would sign my little McCarthy I'd brought. Just on a whim, thought, 'what the heck, might as well try,' and she agreed. Got him back from her today and LO AND BEHOLD!!! McCarthy's got three super awesome signatures on the back of him!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGHHH!!!!! *D*
If I'd been able to ask them personally, I would have asked them to sign across the front, but WHAT THE HECK, IRISH SINGING CLERGYMEN SIGNED MY ART! WHAAAAAAT!!!
Carthers is so cute... He's like, "My clerics have been defiled with sharpie, BUT I DON'T CARE! THIS IS AMAZING!! JERRY! LOOK AT MY CASSOCK! THEY SIGNED IT!"
Jerry: "|:U Elias, you're a moron."
Needless to say, I totally flipped out today. Made the fact that I'm super sick right now bearable! XD
