From The Oldie-But-Goody Files...

Today's the Feast of St. Dominic, and so I felt it was an opportune moment to bring out one of my favourite jokes.

Which Religious Order has been the most successful, the Society of Jesus (aka the Jesuits, founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola) or the Order of Preachers (aka the Dominicans, founded by St. Dominic)?

Well... consider this: the Dominicans were founded to combat the Albigensian heresy, the Jesuits were founded to combat the Protestant heresy.

Now when was the last time you saw an Albigensian? Boom Boom!

(I offer that little jest in memory of a dear friend, Dominic Mary, who was a Third Order Dominican. Requiescat in pace.)
