The Pope dies and goes to heaven. St. Peter greets him
and says, ¡°Glad to see you; we¡¯ve got your place all ready.¡±
Peter then takes the Pope down the street and shows him
his new home: a small but comfortable cottage of 5 rooms.
Peter advises the Pope to settle in, and then wander
around meeting the other residents.
The Pope meets many old friends and makes several new
ones over the next few days. One of these is a former law-
yer who invites the Pope over for lunch. On arriving, the
Pope is astounded to see a 45 room mansion, with built-in
sauna and weight-room, a beautiful library, and spacious,
airy rooms.
After lunch, the Pope spies St. Peter on the street and
says, ¡°Not to complain, but I¡¯m curious as to why I have a
small cottage while the lawyer I just met has a stupendous
mansion.¡±
St. Peter replied, ¡°Well, you see, we have many Popes up
here, but only one lawyer.¡±
