I don't have a link yet, but my cousin in Chicago who is in the know just emailed me about this, and he is a very reliable source. I also double checked with Fr. Athanasius of Chicago and he confirmed: this is real!

:) He will never get lost when visiting his parishes!  He's got a map for that.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

The people of Chicago are stupid, but they are not that stupid.

Besides, we have Rahm I to tell us Chicago values.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

My son sent me a text saying to look out the window, my car had been stolen. I didnt understand what was going on.
I ran to the window but my care was still there. My heart was pounding.

Dude, if you're going to hit us with an April Fools joke, at least make it less obvious. ;)

I've seen Aprils fools jokes today about scent-based google searches, youtube being an 8 year long contest, Google maps showing you where buried treasure is, etc...

Most successful April Fool's was when my brother pretended to be ostensibly dead from a car / bike accident.

His commitment to lying in the cornfield in a position which truly looked utterly broken was laudable. As was the hysterical ranting and weeping of his best friend who delivered the "news" to my mother.

And people think I have a dark sense of humor . . .

Your brother should be crowned king for this.

No wonder you're a Bishop.

It was.

She just didn't hear. She saw it.

He looked broken. I was always the family contortionist, but his body was uncanny.

Bike taken apart and its parts thrown about.

When my mother got within about 30 yards:

April Fools!
