Gate of Heaven

“One day Our Lord making rounds of Paradise saw some strange faces. He asked Peter: ‘Who let these people in?’

Peter: ‘There is nothing I can do.’

The Lord: ‘But you have the key.’

Peter: ‘There is nothing I can do, and you can’t do either.’

The Lord: ‘What do you mean?’

‘It’s your mother. She has another key. She let’s them in.’ ”
