A taxi driver and a pastor both passed away at the same time and went to Heaven. Each of them received gifts from God, but the pastor was not happy.
Both the pastor and the taxi driver passed away on the same day. The two of them went straight to Heaven, where they saw St. Peter waiting for them at the gates of Heaven.
St. Peter was tasked with showing them what their fates in Heaven would be and what each of them would receive from God. Of course, both the pastor and the taxi driver were excited.
They arrived at an enormous mansion that was filled with all the luxurious things one can think of. It even had a bowling alley and an Olympic-sized pool to be used at any time.
St. Peter turned to the taxi driver and said that the mansion was his. The taxi driver was very happy with what he heard and exclaimed, “Wow, thank you so much!”
Excited, the pastor knew that big things awaited him. St. Peter told the pastor to follow him and led him to an old shack with a rusty bunk bed and an old television set.
The pastor was confused and slightly angered by what God had given him as a reward. He was shocked that the taxi driver received so much while he received so little.
Dismayed with what was in front of him, he said to St. Peter, “Wait! I think you might have mixed up things a little. Don’t you think I should be the one who gets the mansion?”
He explained that he was a pastor when he was still alive, and all he did was going to church every day and preaching God’s word to the congregation—it was a devoted lifestyle.
St. Peter nodded and calmly said, “Well, yes. But during your sermons, people slept. But when the taxi driver drove, everyone prayed!”
Later that day, back on earth, the Pope visited America and rode a limo when he felt the need to drive. Since the driver was a good Catholic man, he did not dare question the Pope’s authority.
So, as soon as the Pope requested to get behind the wheel, the driver got in the back and watched. They traveled down the road going between 70 to 80 mph when a police officer saw them.
He pulled them over and called the headquarters to report the speeding vehicle with a VIP inside. “Who’s in the limo? The mayor?” the chief asked. “No, someone more important than the mayor,” the officer replied.
“Is it the governor?” the chief asked again. “No, someone more important than the governor,” the officer replied. Again, the chief asked, “Is it the President?” “No, someone even more important than the President,” the officer said.
At this point, the chief was angry with the guessing game. “Now, who is more important than the President?” he yelled.
The policeman whispered on the phone, “Let me put it to you this way, chief. I don’t know who this guy is, but he has the Pope as his chauffeur.”
