The Sunday school teacher asked her preschool class, “How many of you would like to go to Heaven?”

A priest was invited to attend a house party. Naturally, he was properly dressed and wearing his priest’s collar.
A little boy kept staring at him the entire evening. Finally, the priest asked the little boy what he was staring at. The little boy pointed to the priest’s neck.
When the priest finally realized what the boy was pointing at, he asked him, “Do you know why I am wearing that?”
The boy nodded his head yes, and replied, “It kills fleas and ticks for up to three months.”
A grandfather walking past his young granddaughter’s room one night saw her
kneeling beside her bed, with head bowed and hands folded, repeating the alphabet.
“What are you doing?” he asked her.
She explained, “I’m saying my prayers, but I couldn’t think just what to pray for. So I’m just saying all the letters of the alphabet, and God can put them together however He thinks best.”
