How to get to heaven from Ireland...

Getting to Heaven from Ireland...

A true story from an Irish Sunday School teacher

I was testing the 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 of 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!"

"If I 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 little boy shouted out: "YUV GOTTA BE FOOKIN' DEAD!" 

It's a curious race, the Irish.  Brings a tear to the eye, doesn't it?


Yes, my ancestors were Irish.  :)
