Sabaste and the Jew :Short story 

11 03 2017

St Sabasta was very distressed when a Jewish business man he had brought to the verge of converting to Christianity wanted to go to Rome, to the Vatican to do business. This was the time of the Borgia Pope”

” You should get baptized first before going,” Sabasta pleaded 

“Why” 

“Because once you see the Pope and cardinals and how corrupt they are you will never join the Catholic Church ”

” I am good businessman “,  said the Jew” and I believe in business before pleasure” ”  I must conclude my business in the Vatican first ” 

A few months later the Jew returned and came straight to Sabasta 

“I am ready to be baptized now  and enter the Church ”

” What!   you didn’t go after all? ”

” No,  I just came back, ” the Jew replied. 

” And you want to become a Catholic,  after seeing the corrupt cardinals and Pope ”

” Yes,  I told you I am a good business man. ” 

“In my experience,  any institution as corrupt as the Catholic Church will collapse in 14 months. The Church has lasted 14 centuries.  It has to be miraculously preserved by God.  So I want to join”
