Laughing With The Saints

Fr. Martin is an associate editor for America magazine.  Surprisingly, given the usual stance of that magazine, he often gives good talks on Catholic topics.

Here is a series of videos from a talk he gave on the importance of humor and joyousness.

I found this effect very funny.  Its called the Thatcher effect and demonstrates a point about facial recognition.  It was on a British Comedy Panel Show called QI

Both photographs of Margeret Thatcher's face are upside down.  Now turn your head or monitor upside down and look at them again.

The human brain adjusts the upside down image for what it expects to see and reverses the other parts in your mind's eye.

My traditionalist Catholic priest gave me a very good book named "This Is The Faith" by Canon Francis Ripley, and I believe it had a section on the role of humor in Catholicism. It's a very traditional book, by the way.
