The Priest And The Pilot

Recommended Posts

A priest dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is

a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans.

Saint Peter addresses this cool guy, 'Who are you, so that I may know

whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?*

The guy replies, 'I'm Bill, retired Qantas Airlines Pilot from Sydney '.

Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot, 'Take this

silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom.' The pilot goes into

Heaven with his robe and staff.

Next, it's the priest's turn. He stands erect and booms out, 'I am Father

Bob, pastor of Saint Mary's in Pasadena for the last 43 years.'

Saint Peter consults his list. Saint Peter says to the priest, 'Take this

cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom'.

'Just a minute,' says the good father. 'That man was a pilot and he gets a

silken robe and golden staff and I get only cotton and wood. How can

this be?'

'Up here - we are results oriented,' says Saint Peter. 'When you preached

- people slept. When he flew, people prayed.'
