"perhaps wisdom is a fruit of laughter," or perhaps even more so, laughter is a fruit of wisdom.

St Thomas Aquinas: "Everything I have written seems like straw by comparison with what I have seen and what has been revealed to me." I find this delightfully amusing, particularly in anticipation of the final revelation!

St Philip Neri is known as the "humourous saint" who laughed his way to heaven. I need to devote some time getting to know this saint better.

A biography of St Faustina proposes that if she had not entered religious life, her vocation could very well have been lived out as a stand up comedian. Wow.

I believe the wisdom of these saints inspired blessed laughter.
