What to do?

The Pope had a meeting of all his bishops and cardinals at the Vatican one day, and during a break, one cardinal was at a window getting some air when he noticed Jesus walking up the Vatican steps. He thought he must be seeing things, so he got a couple of his colleagues to confirm that yes, Jesus was walking up the Vatican steps. The men then got the Pope to see for himself that yes, Jesus was walking up the steps.

One cardinal spoke. “Your worship, Lord Jesus Christ is coming here to the Vatican to visit us. What should we do?”
To which the Pope replied, “Look busy.”

Temptation

A priest and a rabbi were taking the same flight and had seats next to each other. After a while the priest turned to the rabbi and asked, “Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?”
The rabbi responded, “Yes, that is still a requirement of our faith.”
The priest then asked, “Have you ever eaten pork?”
The rabbi replied, “Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to the temptation and tasted pork.”
The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.
A while later the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, “Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?”
The priest replied, “Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.”
The rabbi then asked him, “Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?”
The priest replied, “Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke my vow of celibacy.”
The rabbi nodded understandingly for a moment and then said, “A lot better than pork, isn’t it?”

Sinned

An old man of eighty goes into the confessional and tells the priest,

“Forgive me Father for I have sinned.”

The Father asks the nature of his infraction.

The old man confesses he made love to two twenty-year old girls.

The priest asks, “How long since your last confession?”

The old man replies, “Oh, I’ve never been to confession. I’m Jewish.”

The priest queries, “Then why are you tell me this?”

The old man replies, “Hell, I’m telling everybody!”
