Cain killed his brother Abel due to his jealousy and envy and the Bible says Cain walked around with a gloomy face. Cain never cracked a smile or laughed. Cain was all depressed and downcast and walked around with a sour vinegary face and the Bible says: “So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast. Then God said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?” Genesis 4:5-6. Now you know why I love to tell jokes, listen to them, and laugh. I can't encourage each of you enough to laugh and laugh often...why? Because it's good for your soul! When you come to Mass with me you come to a celebration not to an obligation. I will never forget what one of my favorite seminary professors told us: “when you become priests and have an opportunity to make your people laugh on Sunday, do it, they have had a very hard week!” And don’t I ever make you laugh and smile especially with my laughter! I love putting smiles on your faces! Do the same! With a big smile, Father Adam!
