Reach out

By

The story is told about three men who arrived at the gate of heaven almost simultaneously. St. Peter asked them how they died, and the first one said: “When I entered my room, I saw that my belongings had been ransacked, and in a fit of anger I threw the heavy cabinet out of the window, and I had a heart attack.” The second one said: “I was just walking when a cabinet came falling down from above.” And the third one said: “I heard footsteps, and I went inside a cabinet to hide.”

In our small way
