Father O’Reilly, the parish priest of a small church in the Chicago suburbs, received a call from the IRS.
He answered the phone and the person at the other end asked, “Hello, is this Father O’Reilly?”
“It is”, Father O’Reilly replied.
“I am Jim Robertson and I am calling from the IRS. Can you help us?”
Father O’Reilly replied, “Certainly, I will if I can”.
“Do you know a Bob Houlihan?” the man from the IRS asked.
“I do”, Father O’Reilly replied.
“Is he a member of your congregation?” the man from the IRS asked.
Father O’Reilly replied, “He is indeed”.
The man from the IRS then asked, “Did he donate $10,000 to the church?”
Father O’Reilly thought for a moment and then replied, “He will”.
