Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“It is the test of a good religion if you can joke about it.”

— G. K. Chesterton

Today I am able to joke with God and about God. I am able to laugh at me swinging incense at a candlestick and then swinging the incense at the Bishop! I smile at the determined seriousness of choirboys who receive communion while at the same time sticking chewing gum under the arm rail. I chuckle at the embarrassment of the baptism family when the baby pulls the plug out of the font and the holy water drains away.

Today I am able to laugh at God and His Church it joyously reflects man’s imperfection but at the same time reminds him of his glory.

God, I contemplate You laughing at our pompous piety.
