Mary and the Magnifi-Cot

I truly think our new Assistant Priest for St. Mary’s Episcopal, Rev. Betsy Tesi, is on to something. She offers this slightly altered version of the days before there was no room in the inn.
“And the Virgin Mary, having of herself a bad back, did convince Joseph to make a trip to the local Bethlehem REI. And she did buy a camp bed, and her back pains were greatly eased. And she sang the great hymn, the Magnifi-Cot.”
The Rev. Susan Church adds, “And what a Magnifi-cot it was.”

Now that’s rewriting history.
