A Limerick for a Questioning Grandson – Did Jesus Really Exist?

by Steve Ray on September 16, 2013

My Grandpa is a Biblical Detective

Was there really a man named Jesus?
Or do the Catholics just try to tease us?
I went to the places,
Studied books for all traces,
And discovered he’s real which should please us.

A Limerick just sent to me from Darrell, a new convert, in response to the limerick I just posted:

There once was a man in much doubt,
What his Protestant faith was about.
Then a great guy named Steve
Helped the man to believe
In the Church that his Savior laid out.

Steve,
Thanks for all you do. My journey home to the Catholic Church all began several years ago with me watching your Footprints of God videos and reading your books. Since my own conversion at Easter vigil this year, my spiritual life has blossomed. Merry Christmas, and in the spirit of giving, I’d like to offer you a limrick of my own.

There once was a man in much doubt,
what his protestant faith was about.
Then a great guy named Steve helped the man to believe
in the Church that his savior laid out.

This one is not very good. It doesn’t rhyme as well as yours and Darrell’s. And it may be a bit over the top. But I ran it by some friends from Church and they said I should submit it. Here goes:

Here’s a little ditty
’bout a little boy
in the big ol’ city.

He said, “In Christ believe not I,
Unless he sees him
with his own eye.”

By and by,
the boy did die
and Jesus Christ he did espy

But it was too late
for to this date
his prayer he didn’t say

then these sad words
is what he heard
on that eventful day.

Go ahead Peter
Close that doo’
cause that boy there
I do not know

sincerely,

embarrassed
