An affectionate but humorous poem suggesting an advert for the perfect Priest
THEME 'Wanted' - the Perfect Priest AUTHOR Original Author Unknown PRODUCT CODE LV05 SUITABILITY The humorous poem on this laminate first appeared in the Catholic News, the Nottingham diocesan newspaper. ‘THE PERFECT PRIEST is 40 years old, tall, slim, athletic and handsome. He has the vigour of a 25-year-old and the wisdom of a 60-year-old. . . .’ and so continues this amusing light-hearted advert for the priesthood. It was referenced to Fr Eddy, the then bishop’s secretary, and Watermead’s first laminate was given to him in appreciation. PRESENTATION The wording is presented on pastel marbled paper and laminated. SIZE 297 mm x 210 mm (A4 ISO standard paper size) ACCESSORIES An envelope can be provided - but please note envelopes need to be ordered separately at an additional cost.

- WATERMEAD'S LAMINATED THOUGHTS This laminate belongs to the series we call 'Verba', a Latin term meaning "the words". These words can be anything, from inspirational words that people have found and want to share through our apostolate to the reflections and poems that have been given to us by their author - who is usually someone that has been inspired by the work of our apostolate. Some of the orignal poems and reflections that we have been given are also shared through other of our publications, with many used to add a themed message to our mass and greeting cards. (NB We do always check for copyright before sharing words that we have been given and, when found, the author is acknowledged.) BACKGROUND TO THE LAMINATE SERIES Lam’posts was the name first given to this series of laminated A4 thoughts. ‘Lam’ from the word laminate and‘post’ because they were designed as an alternative postal greeting to the usual card. When Watermead introduced 'Lam’posts' it was possible to post an A4 laminate in an envelope for the same cost as posting a letter or greetings card. Changes to Britain’s postal system saw the cost of posting an A4 envelope rise considerably – making 'Lam’posts' no longer financially appealing as a postal greeting. However, they are still very popular, sharing their messages of comfort or greeting – and as a humorous or thought-provoking poster in the kitchen, bedroom, classroom, chapel. And, of course, they can still be posted.
