AN IRISH FRIENDSHIP WISH

May there always be work for your hands to do;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.


Now.................Make A Wish!!

God's Country

God's Country

An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world.

For his first chapter he decided to write about famous Canadian cathedrals.

So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Vancouver, thinking that he would

work his way across the country from west to east. On his first day he was inside

a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the

wall with a sign that read ~$10,000 per call~. The American, being intrigued, asked

a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied

that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God. The

American thanked the priest and went along his way. Next stop was in Calgary.

There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same

sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Vancouver

and he asked a nearby nun what it's purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line

to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God. Thank you,said the American.

He then traveled to Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and

Montreal and in every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same

$10,000 per call sign under it. Finally, the American arrived in Halifax, and again, 

there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read

~10 cents per call.~ The American was surprised so he asked the priest about the

sign. Father, I've traveled all over Canada and I've seen this same golden

telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to heaven, but in all

the other provinces the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?

The priest smiled and answered, you're in Nova Scotia now son, it's a local call.
