review Between Heaven and Mirth Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything comes a revolutionary look at how joy humor and laughter can change our lives and save our spirits A Jesuit priest with a busy media ministry Martin understands the intersections between spirituality and daily life  In Between Heaven and Mirth he uses I like books that move me or change my existing perspective on things After all if not for entertainment why read That s the reason why I really liked this book by James Martin a Jesuit priest In my mind I can now picture laughing Jesus Mary and other biblical characters and even saints Prior to this book I could hardly imagine them smiling because that s just the way they are normally depicted on pictures photos or statues serious glum looking definitely not smiling I used to see paintings like this before but I used to think that they are preposterous James Martin changed my mind There are indeed many passages in the Bible that are supposed to be funny But when we were taught about them when we were kids we were made to believe that they were to be taken seriously For example how could a mustard seed turn into a big shady tree that can serve as a home for birds James Martin was uick to add however that being happy is synonymous with being happy does not necessarily mean being always cheerful You are still not expected to always be smiling when you are inside the church or a religious event Or call attention to yourself by trying to be funny When your joy is from your inside it will radiate to your face it will give it a holy glow Look at really religious people like St Pope John Paul II or Mother Theresa Even if they were old wrinkled or gray or no hair they still look fresh and youngAlso as part of its conclusion
