Laughing with the Saints

"That's not to say that no bishop has a sense of humor. Cardinal O'Connor of New York City was once at a fundraiser, I need a prop for this - it is a true story ..."

It seemed, with all the economic doom and gloom in the news these days, that a moment of humor might be called for.

This very short, and very funny, story comes from a video podcast of a talk given by Father James Martin, S.J., called “Laughing with the Saints: Joy, Humor and Laughter in the Spiritual Life” at Sacred Heart University last year.

If you enjoy this clip, the full 1:19:36 video is available as a free download from the Apple iTunes store at (clicking this link will open a new window and attempt to launch a copy of the iTunes application).

Fr. James' book, My Life With The Saints, is available at and other booksellers.
