All Saints Day: How do I get to Heaven? Shared By Fr Kevin Walsh, Sydney Australia

I was testing the children in my Sunday school class about All Saints to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven.
I asked them, “If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into Heaven?”
“NO!” the children answered.
“If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?”
Again, the answer was, “NO!”
By now I was starting to smile. Hey, this was fun!
“Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven?”
I asked them again. Again, they all answered, “NO!”
I was just bursting with pride for them. “Well,” I continued, “then how do you get into Heaven?”
A five-year-old boy shouted out, “WELL, FIRST YOU GOTTA BE
DEAD.”
