A Good Laugh… but Seriously Now
From Lynne Peterson, Cape Town – The last laugh is the first item I turn to when I get The Southern Cross, and the one in the November 2021 issue — about the priest in a restaurant with too many choices — had me chuckling throughout the day.
On a more serious note, the restaurant in the joke could be symbolic of life, with all the choices one is faced with daily. Sadly, there are those who prefer to depend solely on themselves instead of calling on the saints as well for help, as the priest eventually does in the joke. To that end, your “Saint of the Month” series is informative and a reminder that Catholicism is rich in resources to aid our journey towards eternal life.
Perhaps St Phillip Neri or St Lawrence can assist us in making good choices…
