Dying Predictions

The holy family is sitting at dinner and the conversation comes up of how each will end life.┬áJesus says that he will be sacrificed for the sins of mankind. Joseph says he believes he will die peacefully at home with his son and wife at his bedside. They turn to Mary, she thinks for a moment, then says, “I think, at the end of my life, I will be carried, body and soul into heaven.”

Joseph looks at her and says, “Dear, that’s quite an assumption.”
