The old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years
he had faithfully served the people of the nation's
capital. He motioned for one of his aides to come
near. "Yes, father," said the aide.
"I would really like to see Ted Kennedy and John Kerry
before I die," whispered the priest.
"I'll see what I can do, father," replied the aide.
The aide sent the request to the Senate and waited for
a response. Soon the word arrived. Kennedy and Kerry
would be delighted to visit the priest. As they went
to the hospital, Kerry commented to Kennedy, "I don't
know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will
certainly help our images after the number the
Republicans have done on us." Kennedy couldn't help
When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest
took Kennedy's hand in
his right hand and Kerry's hand in his left. There
was silence and a look
of serenity on the old priest's face. Finally Senator
Kennedy spoke "Father, of all the people you could
have chosen, why you chose us to be with you as you
near the end?"
The old priest slowly replied, "I have always tried to
pattern my life after our Lord and Savior Jesus
"Amen," said Kennedy. "Amen," said Kerry.
The old priest continued..."He died between two
thieves. I would like to
do the same."
I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!
