Sometimes ya gotta laugh…
These blogs raise bring me giggles and smiles.
The Ironic Catholic, (After years of family camping, and eight years of NOT, this was a gem to read: “How family car camping is like the spiritual life.”)
And over on Twitter, there’s always Emergency Cute Stuff.
Remember, God gave us the gift of laughter… so do it often. It might be the key to your new evangelization witness in the world.
Bonus: There’s still time to get your 2015 Nuns Having Fun Wall Calendar.

I always love kid jokes. Clean, fun, silly. Here’s a neat website I found that specializes in clean jokes submitted by children.
Insert your own comic rim shot after each one.
Here’s a sample:
Q. How do you make seven an even number?
A. Take the s out!
Q. What dog can jump higher than a building?
A. Anydog, buildings can’t jump!
Q: What’s black and white and makes a lot of noise?
A: A zebra with a drumkit.
Q. How do you make a fruit punch?
A. Give it boxing lessons.
Q. Where can you find an ocean with no water?
A. On a map!
Q. What animal needs to wear a wig?
A. A bald eagle.
Q. Why did the Oreo go to the dentist?
A. Because he lost his filling.
I’ve had a few days to relax and retreat (and yes, work) while at Chiara Center in Springfield, IL. It’s a lovely place, and the Sisters are very hospitable and this is a very modern facility. I love the Franciscan heritage and the profoundly beautiful St Francis of Assisi church on the property. (Read all about it, with photos. in this PDF.)
My prayer times have been very special. And, well, my Catholic geeky side has been enthralled, much like when I’ve been at other cathedrals, basilicas, or shrines. Thought you’d like to share in the fun.
Of course the oldest things in here, beside the dirt the church is built on, are the relics. Let’s start with the church’s patron, St Francis.
There’s wonderful marbles and stained glass and art all through the church.
All photos taken by me, Pat Gohn, with my trusty iPhone 4s.
I’ve been on the road a lot. Been missing the family, sure. But I’ve been missing my dog, too. Boston Terriers are known for their clownish antics — all while being dressed up in a “tuxedo”!
So, I want to play human foosball…
Many of these are why I could never work in food service… I drop stuff all the time!
