Tom Sheridan in his book "Book of Catholic Jokes" quotes Pope Benedict XVI as saying "I think its important to be able to see the funny side of life and not take anything too tragically". Going forward from that point Sheridan has collected jokes, some about clergy including the Pope, that are mostly about lay people and the unusual happenings in their daily lives from a Catholic (Roman) and catholic (universal) point of view. Feeling that faith can and should be fun, Sheridan's Book of Catholic Jokes has jokes that "are clean and not mean and not intended to offend anyone ". This paperback book has 96 pages of funny jokes that have sometimes even been used in sermons or homilies to help make a point. If you want to enjoy a fun look at the foibles of persons in the Catholic faith living their daily lives as best they can in spite of unusual circumstances you will want to read The Book of Catholic Jokes.
