He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

Popular Preacher's Perks

Joel Osteen's wife has been sued for assaulting a flight attendant, and the trial judge encountered problems in seating jurors. A significant problem was the number of potential jurors whom had been helped by Rev. Osteen's ministry and wouldn't be impartial.

This is one of the perks awaiting the next St. John Chrysostom!

It may not be much, but let's face it. In a world in which parishioners would rather keep up with the latest MP3 player than pay their priests decently, every little bit helps.
