Sister Mary Ann

Sister Mary Ann, who worked for a home health agency, was out making her rounds visiting housebound patients when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, a gas station was just a block away. She walked to the station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas, but the attendant told her that the only gas can they owned had been loaned out, but she could wait until it was returned.

Since Sister Mary Ann was in a hurry, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. She looked for something in her car that she could fill with gas and spotted a bedpan.

Always resourceful, she carried the bedpan to the station, filled it with gas and carried the full bedpan back to her car.

As she was pouring the gas into her tank, two Baptists watched from across the street. One of them turned to the other and said, “If it starts, I’m turning Catholic.”

the wall

A CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray twice a day, every day for a long, long time. So she went yo check it out. She went to the Wall and there he was, walking slowly up to the holy site. She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, she approached him for an interview.

“Pardon me, sir. I’m Rebecca Smith from CNN. What’s your name?” “Morris Feinberg,” he replied. “Sir,” she continued, “how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?” “I’ve been coming here for over 60 years.” “Sixty year! That’s amazing!” she remarked, “What do you pray for?”

“Well,” the old gentleman thoughtfully responded,” I pray for peace among Christians, Jews, and Muslims. I pray for all the hatred in the world to stop. I pray for our children to grow up safely. I pray that politicians tell us the truth. And finally, I pray for all people to be happy.”

And how do you feel after doing this for 60 years?” “Well, Morris exclaimed, “I feel like I’ve been talking to a brick wall!”
