    "WILL ONLY A FEW BE SAVED?" (Today's Gospel)

    It is Faithfulness and not Pedigree that will be rewarded.

    "But, I'm JEWISH!" "I'm a CHRISTIAN!" Sorry, Membership is NOT AUTOMATIC! "YOUR GOOD DEEDS GO WITH YOU"

    WHAT A SURPRISE!

    " I dreamt death came the other night and heaven's gate swung wide.

    An Angel with a halo bright ushered me inside.

    And there, to my astonishment, were folks I did deride.

    Indignant words rose to my lips but were never set free,

    For every face showed surprise - NO ONE EXPECTED ME"!!!

     

    ONLY ONCE.

    "I shall pass through this world only once.

    Any good I can do, or any kindness show, let me do it now.

    Let me not defer or neglect it,

    "FOR I SHALL NOT PASS THIS WAY AGAIN!"

     

    "I CANNOT HEAR WHAT YOU SAY FOR LISTENING TO WHAT YOU ARE" (Robert Louis Stevenson)

    A FEW SCIENTIFIC FACTS

    "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind" ­-

    (Albert Einstein , physicist)

    THE BIG BANG THEORY WAS DEVELOPED IN THE LATE 1920's by Monsignor Lemaitre, a Belgium  scientist and Catholic priest!

    SOME NON SCIENTIFIC FACTS!

    Excerpts from exam papers -

    "Philosophy means being able to explain why you are happy when you are poor"

    "The Tropic of Cancer is a rare and dangerous disease"!

    "Doctors say that fatal diseases are the worst"!

    "Dew is formed on leaves when the sun shines down on them and makes them

      perspire"!

    "It is a well known fact that a deceased body harms the mind"!

    "When you smell an odourless gas it is probable carbon monoxide"!

    "Ali Baba means being somewhere else when the crime was committed"!

    "Courting disaster means to get engaged"!

    And finally -

    "What are rabies and what would you do for them? Rabies are Jewish priests. I'd

      do nothing for them"!

    The list is endless - so there is hope for us all!
