G.K. Chesterton (quoted by Fr. James V. Schall, SJ) once bristled at someone's admonishment that he was too jovial and comical in his sharing of the Truth: the Truth is still the Truth, and didn't cease being the Truth because Chesterton was being funny. Likewise, a priest I know is very serious and reverent whilst celebrating the TLM, but has a wicked sense of humor. The reason: the opposite of "funny" isn't "serious" or "true." The opposite of "funny" is... "not funny."

Crucify him!'”…Pope Benedict XVI#mypic

The Risen One cannot be seen like a piece of wood or stone.   He can only be seen by the person to whom He reveals Himself.   And He only reveals Himself, to the one whom He can entrust with a mission.   He does NOT reveal Himself, to curiosity but to LOVE;  LOVE is the indispensable organ if we are to see and approach Him.”  Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) The Word of the Witnesses – Seek that Which is Above (1985)#mypic
