A young yet accomplished historical theologian and author went to the Vatican holding written permission to view certain archives. He asked the priest who had greeted him if he could see the archives pertaining to stigmata.
The priest replied only the man upstairs knows how to help you with that subject. The rather perplexed young man then asked, "Are you trying to say I need to speak directly with the almighty Father Himself?
With a slight smile on his face the priest replied, "Not at all my son. I was talking about Brother Thomas who overseas the archives on the second floor."
