Another classic joke featuring three of the most popular religious orders in Catholicism.
A Jesuit, a Dominican, and a Franciscan were walking around the cloister of an old monastery while they were on retreat, talking about the greatness of their respective founding saints and orders, when suddenly the Holy Family appeared in front of them: the Child Jesus was resting in a manger, while Mary and Joseph watched over Him.
The Franciscan immediately fell on his face: “Oh, brothers,” he said “let us marvel at the sight of God’s humbleness, who was willing to be born in such poverty.”
The Dominican fell to his knees: “Brothers, let us meditate on the beautiful reflection of the Trinity in the Holy Family.”
The Jesuit walked up to Joseph, put his arm around his shoulder, and said, “So, have you thought about where to send the boy to school?”
"Since you are here...
…we have a small favor to ask. Aleteia’s readership continues to grow rapidly, however advertising revenues across all media are falling fast. You may have noticed that many websites are putting up paywalls in order to sustain their journalism. For us, however, this is not an option as our apostolic mission is to encourage and inspire Christian life for as many Catholics as possible. We would also like to reduce the number of ads on the site, but it is simply not possible unless we generate income in other ways. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Aleteia’s journalism takes a lot of hard work and money to produce. We will continue to serve you because it is our mission, but please consider making a contribution to support our work and help us secure our future."
