The Lighter Side
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven!
Yesterday's issue featured Saint Dominic in our HISTORY OF THE MASS AND HOLY MOTHER CHURCH section and so we bring you this bit o' wit today:
A man, curious about religious orders, approached a Dominican friar: "What can you tell me about the Dominicans?"
Speaking of Jesuits who are called "teachers" and Dominicans who are called "preachers", the question arises: If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
"Well, in short, we were founded by St. Dominic as an answer to the Albigensians," replied the friar.
"What about the Jesuits?"
"They were founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola as a response to the Protestant Reformation."
"So which is the greater order?"
The Dominican pondered for a second, then replied, "Well, when was the last time you met an Albigensian?"
Keeping in that vein, we bring you more puzzlers that could be considered hybrid oxymorons by morons but definitely not for morons.
Still More Questions to tax the brain...or a bit o' wit titled: Didja ever just wonder why..?
