The Blessed and Holy Jeep Saint Jeronica

29 05 2010

Jeronica, an honest-to-God real ‘Merican Jeep Cherokee was fearfully and wonderfully made along with her bretheren and sisteren in Detroit, MI. She served many friends and family during her life and eventually wound up in Hoboken, NJ where she continued a year of faithful service under the care of Sista girl. She is very faithful, never breaking down, and always efficiently using the resources she was given. It is said that her only vice is a taste for Premium Petrol, though such rumours are unconfirmed. She has a preference for road trips, but doesn’t care for long commutes, saying that life is too short to spend more than a few minutes going back and forth to work everyday. She has an infectious love of travel, saying it broadens the mind, heart and spirit. She is quoted as saying “Always keep a full tank of gas, your fluids changed regularly and your AAA membership up to date. You never know when the open road may call you to parts unknown.” Indeed, it was such a sense of joie de vivre that led Sista girl to lend Jeronica to her brother, the Reverend boy to guide and watch over him as he begins his sojourn in Key West.

Her feast day is May 30.

O God, who guides the travellers on their way and brings the wanderers home, we give thanks for the ministry and service of the Blessed and Holy Jeep Saint Jeronica. Grant that we may be like her, fleet of foot and sleek of style. May she ever guide us on our path and bring us to the safety of our destination for work, for leisure and ultimately to our place of respite. Through Jesus Christ Your Son our Lord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, for ever and ever, world without end. Amen.

I didn’t know you were a Jeep guy! I have a Patriot, which was a compromise between the Wrangler Unlimited and the hybrid towards which my tree-hugging conscience was nudging me . I am amazed how much stuff we can get in it, and it’s rugged enough to make me happy, but I still want a used Wrangler someday as a fun car.
