God...In Our Hearts

A little something I read recently...something to reflect about.

A crowd of Catholics showed up at the gates of heaven. "Right this way," said St. Peter and showed them to a room.

Later that day, Buddhists came, Presbyterians came, the Sikhs arrived, and then the Muslims. "OK," Peter said, "Now everybody's checked in, and we can get you all settled. But please tiptoe pass the third room on the right." "But why?" the crowd said.

"Because that's where the Catholics are," St. Peter said, "and we don't want to disappoint them; they think they're the only ones here."

...God is in the heart of humankind. If we listen clearly, we can hear that same voice in another language.
