Two Sundays ago, I had what writers of an earlier era would call a "rollicking good time" speaking to a group of about 500 Catholics on laughter (at least I think they were all Catholics--they certainly got all the Catholic jokes), and was interviewed on the topic by Maryknoll Media. The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, as well as the Maryknoll Sisters, and the Maryknoll Lay Associates, have been a wonderful part of my life since my time in East Africa. (The Maryknoll Sisters, in particular, used to remind me not to take myself so seriously, and laugh at all the unpredictable things that used to happen in Nairobi.) Here, with thanksgiving to all the Maryknollers I've known and loved, is a portion of the talk and the interview. And no you can't click on that photo there, with the "What Me, Worry?" pose. You have to click here for the video. Hope it makes you laugh!
