It seems a little incongruous to be focusing on jokes and humor during this serious season of Lent. It’s almost sacrilegious, or irreverent at the very least. But I want to have joy in my fasting, prayer and almsgiving. To clear my mind by fasting from my daily concerns with food opens it to new insights. What a joy that can be! To turn to prayer more frequently so I can understand that spiritual (or physical or emotional) help is available through the unity we share, is life-giving. And almsgiving helps me to be grateful for the abundance I have been given. There is definitely sadness and distress in the world. We can’t laugh it away. But a smile or an inner guffaw makes the road much easier to travel. So I smile Life is good!
