The following is being transmitted around the Internet as an event that really took place, but it never happened. It is simply an old joke like those found in popular magazines:
Believe it or not…this is the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The Radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on Oct. 10, 1995.US Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.
CND reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
US Ship: This is the Captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.
CND reply: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course!
US Ship: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS CORAL SEA*, WE ARE A LARGE WARSHIP OF THE US NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!!
CND reply: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
Today we are reminded in our readings that someitmes we need to change our course
Jesus says — REPENT, which means CHANGE
Sometimes we need to change our courses because they are leading us to destruction
Sr. Bethany Madonna at NCYC shared how she had started to make the wrong friensd in her high school days, making bad decisions, etc, and one day she finaly realized she needed a new group of friends
She needed to change her course
Sometimes we need to do this – esp when our course is taking us down a bad raod.
