At the Offertory (from last week)

Offertory Joke: For once there was a man who died and went to heaven. He was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter who led him down the golden streets. They past mansions after beautiful mansions until they came to the end of the street where they stopped in front of a shack. The man asked St. Peter why he got a hut when there were so many wonderful mansions he could live in. St. Peter replied, "I did the best with the money you sent us."

Offertory Invitation: Let us not store up for ourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for ourselves treasures in heaven (from Matthew 6) For each of us must give as we have made up our mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (from 2 Corinthians 9)
