Saving Souls - Papal Surprise #1

From the Vatican...

The Pope has confirmed that the soul really does leave the body when a person sneezes and the spoken words, God bless you, offer vital protection.

His Holiness is pretty sure other bodily eruptions also expel the soul and give the Devil an opportunity to snatch it.

"To be on the safe side," suggested the Pope, "we should respond to someone's cough with Jesus loves you and for hiccups, say Praise the Lord.

Saints be praised is the best reply to a burp."

The Pontiff urged everyone to be on-the-spot guardians of loose souls: "When you hear a fart, say Amen or Hallelujah, and for really bad farts I like to shout ¡Dios Mio!"
