Little Catholic Humour

A lawyer, a priest, and a young boy were in a plane that was going to crash, yet they only had 2 parachutes.

The lawyer proclaimed that since he was the smartest man on the plane, that he deserved to survive. He took a chute and jumped.

The priest looks and the young boy, and reflecting back on his life, told the young boy to take the last parachute since he had already lived a wonderful and full life.

The boy replied, “You can have the other chute because the smartest man on this plane just jumped out with my bookbag!”

 Fr. Tim Sabbatical Notes:
1) Looking for a good book to read on friendship? Here’s a couple of
quotes and a bibliographic reference from something that well worth reading:
“What is true about human friendships is also true about our friendship with God. And what is holy about our friendship with God is instructive to us about our human friendships.”  

“The experience of human friendship can teach us how to grow in
the friendship and love of God.”   

Lauenstein, Gary. The Heart of Holiness: Friendship with God and
Others. Ignatius Press. 2006

2) Our sympathies and condolences go out to the family of Paul
Keon who passed away this week and his funeral service was
celebrated on Saturday.  Please keep his family in your prayers.
