View Full Version : The Dying Priest

01-28-2010, 09:44 AM

In Washington, D.C. an old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years he
had faithfully served the people of the nation's capital. He motioned for
his nurse to come near.

"Yes, Father?" said the nurse.

"I would really like to see President Obama and Speaker Pelosi before I
die", whispered the priest.

"I'll see what I can do, Father", replied the nurse.

The nurse sent the request to The President and Congress and waited for a
response. Soon the word arrived; President Obama and Nancy Pelosi would be
delighted to visit the priest.

As they went to the hospital, Obama commented to Pelosi, "I don't know why the
old priest wants to see us, but it will certainly help our images and might
even get me re-elected. After all, I'm IN IT TO WIN ." Pelosi agreed that it was a good thing.

When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took Obama's hand in his
right hand and Pelosi's hand in his left hand. There was silence and a look
of serenity on the old priest's face.

Finally President Obama spoke. "Father, of all the people you could have
chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?"

The old priest slowly replied, "I have always tried to pattern my life
after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

"Amen", said Obama.

"Amen", said Pelosi.

The old priest continued, "Jesus died between two lying thieves; I would
like to do the same."
