Simply Joke

It's kinda boring these few days. I know many of my friends are happily enjoying back in their hometown which some may take their books along. How far they have open their books, it is up to your imagination. =>
.
As usual, I go to the church on Saturday. It was a bit different on that day because my parish came a visiting priest from Brunei. During his homily, he cracked a joke. -- One day, this man returns to God's hand and enters the purgatory. (Catholics believe that a person will enter the purgatory before going up to heaven for cleansing) It so happens that he met his former parish priest there and he asked his parish priest, "Why are you here? When you were on earth, you always like to help the people, serve God's people well but I have no idea why are you here." The priest asked, "Shhh.. My dear young man, tone down your voice. The bishop is having his nap!"
.
Catholics always believe that purgatory is a place or a state for spiritual cleasing especially for sinful people. So the man here is a bit shocked that why his kind-hearted priest need to enter purgatory first instead of entering heaven straight away. But the priest here is implying that everyone also has a sin, even the bishop has a sin and to spend some time in the purgatory.

Hope you guys get something here.. Cheers^^
