And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson.

And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson
Jesus loves you more than you will know

Old Mrs Robinson felt a little faint in church today and passed out for a minute or so. She was helped to the sacristy where she sat down surrounded by concerned parishioners.

“I’ll get her a glass of water” said one.

“No … give her brandy!” said Tom.

“Perhaps a warm cup of tea with plenty of sugar” suggested someone else.

“I think she should have a brandy” repeated Tom.

“Maybe we should call for an ambulance” interrupted another parishioner.

“A brandy will sort her out” insisted Tom.

“Perhaps she should be lying down for a bit of a rest.” someone suggested.

“I have some smelling salts” said another.

“Brandy is better” said Tom.

“Will you all shut up and listen to Tom” said Mrs Robinson in exasperation.

The world is full of people crying out in need of something or other. And there’s always plenty of philosophers, scientists, economists, and experts on all sort of things expounding their theories and advising everyone on what should be done.

What they don’t realize is that what the world really needs is a bit more love.

“Love one another as I have loved you.” (John 13:34)


  1. Hi there,

    Here's a very practical way to show our love for manifest public sinners, Mrs R!

    We are trying to spread the word about our petition to the Holy See, supporting Cardinal Burke's exhortations to priests to apply Canon Law # 915 to politicians (and others) who are publicly protesting Catholic teaching and morals.

    You can reach the petition via the link on our homepage, and read the text/sign the petition there. I hope you will publicize this for us, as it is a matter of much concern to us all, worldwide.

    Many thanks

  2. Victor, Perhaps along the way to a 'bit more love' some brandy wouldn't hurt. : )
    And other days after watching the news-- smelling salts...
    Thanks for another heartfelt smile.

    1. I agree Caroline. I normally love people more after a brandy.

      It's sad how the world has become so negative these days.

      May God bless you and yours always, Caroline.

  3. Love Mrs. Robinson - brandy is just fine for her case. Glad Tom was so persistent when others kept pushing their points.

    1. Hi Barbara,

      It's so nice to see you visiting again. Thanx. Yes, brandy will do fine.

      God bless.

  4. Brandy and a little Simon and Garfunkel. Sounds good to me.

    God Bless you.

    1. I agree, Simon & Garfunkel are great. Brandy too.

      God bless you Michael.

  5. So true, Victor. I agree that the world needs more love.

    Along with a bit of brandy ;)

    Just one suggestion: don't give any to your auntie. Lol.

    1. Definetly no brandy for Auntie ... a little love maybe.

      God bless.



God bless you.
