Time for Joy in Adversity

As it is the feast of St Ignatius of Loyola , founder of the Jesuits this coming Saturday, what better way is there  to celebrate than with some Jesuit humour ?
This video is worth watching for some good jokes (despite a couple of oldies ) and nice to see Fr. James Martin - the sound seems to go fuzzy after a few minutes but then is OK.
James Martin, SJ, culture editor of America magazine, talks about the need for joy in the spiritual life, especially in the face of adversity.  He is the author of several books, most recently The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything.
