In my Sunday school class in Dublin, I was quizzing the children on the concept of getting to heaven.
"If I sold my house and my car, and I gave all my money to the church, would that get me into heaven?"
"NO!" the children answered.
If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden, and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?"
"Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave sweets to the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?"
Again, they all answered "NO!" I was just bursting with pride for them.
"Then how can I get into heaven?"
A six year-old boy shouted out: "YUV GOTTA BE FOOKN DEAD."
It's a curious race, the Irish.
