Bring your husbands.
Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our community.
Smile at someone who is hard to love.
Say 'Hell' to someone who doesn't care much about you.
Don't let worry kill you off - let the Church help.

The Magician and the Parrot
A Magician worked on a cruise ship.
The audience was different each week so the magician did the same tricks
over and over again. There was only one problem:
the captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began
to understand how the magician did every trick.
Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show,
'Look, it's not the same hat!' or 'Look, he's hiding the flowers under
the table!' or 'Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?'

They gasped in astonishment when he said, 'Welcome to Heaven.This will be your home now.'
old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. 'Why,
nothing,' Peter replied, 'remember, this is your reward in Heaven.' The
old man looked out the window and right there he saw a championship
golf course, finer and more beautiful than any ever built on Earth..
'What are the greens fees?,' grumbled the old man. 'This is heaven,' St. Peter replied.
'You can play for free, every day.'
they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch, with every
imaginable cuisine laid out before them, from seafood to steaks to
exotic deserts, free flowing beverages.
'Don't even ask,' said St. Peter to the man. This is Heaven, it is all free for you to enjoy.'
old man looked around and glanced nervously at his wife. Well, where
are the low fat and low cholesterol foods and the decaffeinated tea?,'
That's the best part,' St. Peter replied. 'You can eat and
drink as much as you like of whatever you like and you will never get
fat or sick.
This is Heaven!'
The old man pushed, 'No gym to work out at?'
'Not unless you want to,' was the answer.
'No testing my sugar or blood pressure or....'
'Never again. All you do here is enjoy yourself.'
The old man glared at his wife and said, 'You and your bloody bran flakes.
We could have been here ten years ago.
