Heaven? Or Hell?

Jul 9, 2007 12:27 PM–The last thing Old Mary MacQuarrie remembered was going to bed. Now she was standing in a long line of people, slowly advancing through a long, dark hallway towards a bright light. At the end of the hallway there was a receptionist.

Old Mary quavered out, “Am I in heaven now?”

The receptionist replied, “Do you mean the new Jerusalem, with streets of gold and angels eternally singing the praises of Our Lord?”

“Yes,” answered Old Mary.

“Then you’re in heaven. You’ll be in the choir, playing the harp and eternally singing the praises of Our Lord.”

“Oh, no, thank you,” said Mary. “I just want to find my dear Old Paddy, and enjoy the peace that passeth understanding.”

“Then you’re in hell. Here's your harp.”
