It is good to laugh at ourselves. Thomas Merton wrote deep insights on contemplation and society but even he says that we often take ourselves too seriously.
“I think the chief reason why we have so little joy is that we take ourselves too seriously.
Joy can only be real if it is based on truth, and since the fall of Adam all man’s life is shot through falsehood and illusion.”
The best response to life’s absurdities and our own weaknesses is laughter. Melanie
Once when Merton was asked how you can tell if a man has been through inner transformation, he replied that it was very difficult to tell but it is usually accompanied by a wonderful sense of humour.
So with these thoughts in the back of my mind, I present some Catholic humour for your enjoyment.
