The Dying Priest.
« on: September 11, 2013, 21:30:08 PM »

In a London Nursing home an old priest lay dying. 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 David Cameron and Nick Clegg before I die”, whispered the priest.

"I’ll see what I can do, Father”, replied the nurse”. The nurse sent the request to No 10 and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived; David and Nick would be

delighted to visit the priest.

As they went to the hospital, David commented to Nick, "I don’t know why the old priest wants to see us, but it certainly will help our images”.

Nick agreed that it was the right thing to do at this time. When they arrived at the priest’s room, the priest took David's hand in his right hand and the Nick's hand in his

left. There was silence and a look of serenity on the old priest’s face.

The old priest slowly said: "I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.”

"Amen”, said David.

"Amen”, said Nick.

The old priest continued, "Jesus died between two lying, thieving bastards; and I would like to do the same....”
Our days are happier when we give people a piece of our heart
rather than a piece of our mind.
