The 'Word' from our Sponsor

" They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus."
- Luke 24:2-3
Did you hear the one ...

The Pope goes to New York. He is picked up at the airport by a limousine. He looks at the beautiful car and says to the driver, "You know, I hardly ever get to drive. Would you please let me?" 

The driver is understandably hesistant and says, "I'm sorry, but I don't think I'm supposed to do that." 

But the Pope persists, "Please?" The driver finally lets up. "Oh, all right, I can't really say no to the Pope." 

So the Pope takes the wheel, and boy, is he a speed demon! He hits the gas and goes around 100 mph in a 45 zone. A policeman notices and pulls him over. 

The cop walks up and asks the Pope to roll down the window. Startled and surprised, the young officer asks the Pope to wait a minute. He goes back to his patrol car and radios the chief. 

Cop: Chief, I have a problem. 

Chief: What sort of problem? 

Cop: Well, you see, I pulled over this guy for driving way over the speed limit but it's someone really important. 

Chief: Important like the mayor? 

Cop: No, no, much more important than that. 

Chief: Important like the governor? 

Cop: Wayyyyyy more important than that. 

Chief: Like the president? 

Cop: More. 

Chief: Who's more important than the president? 

Cop: I don't know, but he's got the Pope driving for him!
