      This was posted on the Guru Ratings Group by Judi Rhodes, who is so
      enlightened that no bad karma can touch her even when she is
      being semi-sacreligious (or at least I hope that's the case!).

      There was a Pope who was greatly loved by all of his followers, a man
      who led with gentleness, faith and wisdom. His passing was grieved by
      the entire world, Catholic or not.

      As the Pope approached the gates of heaven it was Saint Peter who
      greeted him in a firm embrace.

      "Welcome your holiness, your dedication and unselfishness in
      serving your fellow man during your life has earned you great stature
      in heaven. You may pass through the gates without delay and are
      granted free access to all parts of heaven."

      "You are also granted an open door policy and may at your own
      discretion meet with any heavenly leader, including the Father
      without prior appointment."

      "Is there anything which your holiness desires?"

      "Well yes," the Pope replied, "I have often pondered some of the
      mysteries which have puzzled and confounded theologians through the
      ages, are there perhaps any transcripts which recorded the actual
      conversations between God and the prophets of old?" "I would love to
      see what was actually said, without the dimming of memories over
      time."

      Saint Peter immediately ushered the Pope to the heavenly library and
      explained how to retrieve the various documents. The Pope was
      thrilled and settled down to review the history of man's relationship
      with God.

      Two years later a scream of anguish pierced the stacks of the
      library.
      Immediately several of the Saints and Angels came running to the
      Pope's side to learn the cause of his dismay.

      There they found the Pope pointing to a single word on a parchment,
      repeating over and over, "There's an 'R', There's an 'R'!!!"

      "Look, the word is celibrate, not celibate"!
