"Humor helps preserve our sanity. It provides a medium for gentle reprimand. And it teaches us to take ourselves less seriously. But we must never forget that good humor never diminishes the reality of suffering."
"In this world, tragedy temporarily has the upper hand. We cannot pretend that humor can solve our tragic position, but we can learn to laugh even within the pain, if we follow Christ’s example. Christ was joyful, not because He had nothing over which to sorrow, but rather because He knew that He would one day conquer the powers of darkness and make all things right."
