Thought of the Day September 13, 2023 Laughter

By 10:04 AM

 “Laughter has been implanted in our soul, that the soul may sometime be refreshed.” (St. John Chrysostom)

How often do we laugh at ourselves and at the things we do in life? We are too serious and uptight about things that do not matter in the long run. Laughter helps to put things in right perspective. It helps us to keep our eyes on the Lord and not on ourselves. I think this is the intent of St. Paul's admonition, "Rejoice in the Lord always." Direct our anger at sin, which can destroy us, not at our imperfections, which reminds us of our dependency upon the Lord.
