This wonderful second volume of Catholic jokes and lighthearted stories reminds us to live joyfully and not take ourselves with such deadly seriousness, because if youre deadly serious, youre probably seriously dead. An essentially positive, upbeat, sunny, optimistic, humorous outlook on life shows ones participation in joy, ones faith in the resurrection, and ones belief in God. So enjoy this book, and have a laugh, for Gods sake (literally)!

- SAMPLE JOKE
It was Palm Sunday but because of a sore throat, little Jonnie stayed home with a sitter. When the family returned home, they were carrying several palm fronds. Little Jonnie asked them what they were for.
"People held them over Jesus head as he walked by," his father told him.
"Wouldnt you know it," little Jonnie fumed, "the one Sunday I dont go and he shows up."
