The Irish


I was testing children in my Dublin Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven.

I asked them, ‘If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into heaven?’

‘NO!’ the children answered.

‘If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden, and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?’

Again, the answer was ‘NO!’ By now I was starting to smile.

‘Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave sweets to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?’

Again, they all answered ‘NO!’.

I was just bursting with pride for them. I continued, ‘ Then how can I get into heaven?’

A 6 year-old boy shouted out: ” YUV GOTTA BE FOOKIN’ DEAD . . .”
