“[F]or each one of us there is a special gift, the way in which we may best serve and please the Lord, whose love is so overflowing. And gifts should never be though of quantitatively. One of the holiest women I have ever known did little with her life in terms of worldly success; her gift was that of bringing laughter with her wherever she went, no matter how dark or grievous the occasion. Wherever she was, holy laughter was present to heal and redeem.
“In the Koran it is written, ‘He deserves Paradise who makes his companions laugh.'”
