    Hello Ilites,
    Read on and enjoy.. No offencess meant to anyone.Just a Joke.

    The marketing director of Nescafe manages to arrange a meeting with the Pope at the Vatican.

    After receiving the papal blessing, the Nescafe official whispers,’ Your Eminence, I have some business to discuss. We at Nescafe have an
    offer for you. Nescafe is prepared to donate $100 million to the church if you change the Lord's Prayer from 'Give us this day our
    daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily coffee'.

    The Pope looks outraged and thunders, "That is impossible. The Prayer is the word of the Lord, It must not be changed." Well," says the
    Nescafe man somewhat chastened, "We anticipated your reluctance. For this reason, and the importance of the Lord's Prayer to all Catholics, we will increase our offer to $300 million. All we require is that you change the Lord's Prayer from 'Give us this day our daily bread' to
    'Give us this day our daily coffee'."

    Again, even more sternly, the Pope replies, "That, my son is impossible. For the prayer is the word of the Lord and it must not be
    changed."

    Finally, the Nescafe director says, "Your Holiness, we at Nescafe
    respect your adherence to your faith, we realise that tradition is essential to your beliefs, we fully understand the importance of the
    word of the Lord ................but we do have one final offer.
    Please discuss it with your cardinals. We will donate $500 million to
    the great Catholic church if you would only change the Lord's Prayer from 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily
    coffee'. Please, please consider it." And he leaves.

    The next day the Pope convenes the College of Cardinals. "There is some Good news," he
    announces, "and some bad news .....
    The good news is, he continues to a hushed assembly, ' that the
    Church will get $ 500 million."

    "And what is the bad news, your Holiness?" asks a Cardinal.

    "Sadly" says the Pope ,
