Formerly, when religion was strong and science weak, men mistook magic for medicine. Now, when science is strong and religion weak, men mistake medicine for magic.

  1. The Pope dies and is greeted by St. Peter at the pearly gates. St. Peter informs him that his room isn’t quite ready but if he would like he could grab a bite to eat in the heavenly cafeteria.
    The Pope, as head of the church, naturally goes to the head of the line thinking that he merits this treatment because of his earthly position – but one of the angels serving the food says that he must take his place at the end of the line as in heaven “all people are equal.”
    The Pope begrudgingly grabs a tray and stands at the end of the rather long line when a man comes in wearing a doctor’s scrubs and mask. He moves to the head of the line and is served immediately by one of the Cherubim.
    The Pope, feeling a little incensed complains of his poor treatment and the fact that the doctor was served so quickly while he had to wait in line.
    The Seraphim who is the cafeteria’s Manager says to him, “Your holiness, that wasn’t a doctor – it was our Lord Jesus Christ. He just sometimes likes to play doctor.”
