The Next Life

A nun sent to North Africa after World War II lay on her death bed.

She is comforted by her sisters in the convent and is asked by the priest who is about to begin administering last rites: "Do you believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth?"

"Yes," whispered the dying woman with a smile.

"Do you believe in Jesus Christ, His Son, our Lord, who died for our sins?" The priest continued.

"I do," smiled the nun.

"Do you believe in life after death and the life of the world to come?" He went on.

"Yes, she whispered and became agitated. "And in my next life I want to come back as Sara Pippilini?"

"Who's Sarah Pippilini?" The nuns gathered in the room asked.

She pointed to the morning newspaper's headline: "Three Hundred Men Lay Sahara Pipeline."
