Time to lighten up, people!

Two men considering a religious vocation were having a conversation. "What is similar about the Jesuit and Dominican Orders? " the one asked.

The second replied, "Well, they were both founded by Spaniards -- St. Dominic for the Dominicans, and St. Ignatius of Loyola for the Jesuits. They were also both founded to combat heresy -- the Dominicans to fight the Albigensians, and the Jesuits to fight the Protestants."

"What is different about the Jesuit and Dominican Orders?"

"Met any Albigensians lately?"

This is very funny for about 87 different reasons. And, if I were a judgemental person, I would say that you have a brilliant mind, a competitive nature and a touch of ESP. Oh yes -- and a delightful sense of humor that you so generously share.

Most amusing....Always be nice to Dominicans: I love two of them, like a bunch more, and respect the rest. They are good teachers. .... But then, so are the Jesuits!
