Light a Candle

Mrs. Murphy was walking down O’Connell Street in Dublin when she met up with Father Brennan.
The father said, “Aren’t ye Mrs. Murphy, and didn’t I marry ye and yer man two years ago?”
“Aye, that ye did, father,” she replied.
Father Brennan asked, “and be there any wee little ones yet?”
“No, no, not yet, father,” she answered, eyes downcast.
“Well now, I’m going to Rome next week and I’ll light a candle for ye and yer husband,” he told her.
She replied, “oh, thank ye, father.” Then they parted ways.
Some years later they met on the street again. Father Brennan asked, “well now, Mrs. Murphy, how are ye these days?”
She replied, “oh, very well, father!” He asked, “and tell me, have ye any little ones yet?”
“Oh yes, father,” she exclaimed. “Three sets of twins and 4 singles. Ten in all!”
“That’s wonderful,” the priest said. “And how is yer dear husband doing?”
She replied, “e’s gone to Rome to blow out yer fookin’ candle.”
