I thought that today – for a change – I’d share some Vatican humour with you.
May our Father God Bless you mightily as you Worship and Praise Him in your Church this wondrous Sabbath day!
After getting all the Pope’s luggage loaded into the limo, (and he doesn’t travel light), the driver notices the Pope is still standing on the curb.
“Excuse me, Your Holiness,” says the driver, “Would you please take your seat so we can leave?”
“Well, to tell you the truth,” says the Pope, ‘they never let me drive at the Vatican when I was a cardinal, and I’d really like to drive today.”
“I’m sorry, Your Holiness, but I cannot let you do that. I’d lose my job! what if something should happen?” protests the driver, wishing he’d never gone to work that morning.
“Who’s going to tell?” says the Pope with a smile.
Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as the Pope climbs in behind the wheel. The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after exiting the airport, the Pontiff floors it, accelerating to 120mph.
“Please slow down, Your Holiness” pleads the worried driver, but the Pope keeps the pedal to the floor until they hear police sirens.
“Oh, dear God, I’m going to lose my licence – and my job!” moans the driver. The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the cop approaches, but the cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets on the radio.
“l need to talk to the Boss” he says. The boss gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he’s stopped a limo going at 120 mph.
“So pinch him,” says the Boss. “I don’t think we want to do that because he’s really important”’ said the cop.
“All the more reason!” ‘No, I mean really important,” said the cop with a bit of persistence.
The Boss then asked, “ls it the mayor?”
Boss: “A politician?”
Boss: “The Prime Minister?”
Well, said the Boss, “Whoever is it?”
Cop: “I think it’s God!”
The Boss is even more puzzled and curious
“What makes you think it’s God?”
Cop: “His chauffeur is the Pope!”
With many peaceful blessings
