Joke of the Day

During a Eucharistic Congress, a number of priests from different orders
are gathered in a church for Vespers. While they are praying, a fuse
blows and all the lights go out. The Benedictines continue praying from
memory, without missing a beat. The Jesuits begin to discuss whether the
blown fuse means they are dispensed from the obligation to pray Vespers.
The Franciscans compose a song of praise for God's gift of darkness. The
Dominicans revisit their ongoing debate on light as a signification of
the transmission of divine knowledge. The Carmelites fall into silence
and slow, steady breathing. The parish priest, who is hosting the
others, goes to the basement and replaces the fuse.
