WITH THE POPE
man who is an avid golfer finally gets a once-in-a-lifetime
chance for an audience with the Pope. After standing in
line for hours, he gets to the Pope and says, "Holiness,
I have a question that only you can answer. You see, I love
golf, and I feel a real need to know if there is a golf
course in heaven. Can you tell me if there is?"
The Pope considers for a moment, and says, "I do not
know the answer to your question, my son, but I will talk
to God and get back to you."
The next day the man is called for another audience with
the Pope to receive the answer to his question. He stands
before the Pope, who says, "My son, I have some good
news and some bad news in relation to your question. The
good news is that heaven has the most fabulous golf course
that you could imagine and is in eternally perfect shape."
"And what's the bad news?" asks the man.
"You tee-off tomorrow morning," the Pope replies.
