WHO IS REALLY RIDING IN THIS LIMO?
The story is that the Pope was traveling to a much anticipated, important meeting with the Secretary General of the United Nations. As the pilot began his approach to the JFK airport in New York he was re-directed to land at the Newark, New Jersey airport because of cross winds. Now the Pope was behind schedule and a bit worried.
He was whisked away in a limo...but the driver was going too slow for the Pope who asked him to speed up. The driver replied, "I'm terribly sorry, your Highness, but I can't afford another speeding ticket because I'll lose my driver's license."
The Pope commanded, "Please stop the car...and I'll drive." So they quickly changed drivers, the limo driver in the back...the Pope driving!
Now driving much faster than the speed limit, swearing in and out of traffic, changing lanes, narrowly missing parked cars, the Pope attracted the attention of two police officers in a marked car...with lights on and siren blaring.
The officer said, "I'm going to really nail this guy!" as he got out of the squad with his citation book in hand!
After only a minute or two, the visibly shaken officer returned to the squad with his ticket book still closed and said to his partner, "This guy is BIG, I mean really BIG!"
"Who is it?" his partner asked. "The Mayor of New York City...the Governor of New York State...the President of the United States? Don't tell me we stopped the President?"
"NO...he's bigger than ALL of them!" the first officer insisted.
"Who's bigger than the President of the United Stated?"
"Well...I'm not sure WHO he is, BUT THE POPE IS HIS CHAUFFEUR!"
"Ascribe to the LORD, O mighty ones, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; worship the LORD in His holiness" (Psalm 29:1-2).
