Don’t Quote Me- Quote James Martin, SJ

“All these experiences led me to ask: ‘Why can’t contemporary faith be more like this?’ We need, I would suggest, to recover the notion that joy, humor, and laughter do not lie outside the believing life, but are the heart of it. The are the heart of that life.”
(In his book Between Heaven and Mirth: Why Joy, Humor, an Laughter are at the Heart of the Spiritual Life)
