Each Friday night after work, Sardar would fire up his outdoor grill and

cook a tandoori chicken and some meat kebabs. But, all of his neighbors were

strict Catholics … and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating

chicken and meat on a Friday.* * *

*The delicious aroma from the grilled meats was causing such a problem for

the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their Priest. The Priest

came to visit Sardar and suggested that he become a Catholic.  After several

classes and much study, Sardar attended Mass… and as the priest sprinkled

holy water over him, he said, You were born a Sikh, and raised a Sikh, but

now, you are a Catholic.”

*Sardar’s neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived. The

wonderful aroma of tandoori chicken and meat kebabs filled the neighborhood.

The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors and, as he rushed into

Sardar’s backyard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped

and watched in amazement.

*There stood Sardar, holding a small bottle of holy water which he carefully

sprinkled over the grilling meats and chanted: “Oye, you were born a

chicken, and you were born a lamb, you were raised a chicken and you were

raised a lamb but now you are a potato and tomato !”
