A sense of humor

Mother Mazzarello had a sense of humor to her. One day, perhaps it had been a particularly trying day, she asked her Sisters to be prepared to receive a fine woman into their company. Everyone was to put their best habit on and find their way outside to receive this honored guest.

Everyone was really excited about the splendid visitor about to enter their midst. So out went Mther Mazzarello to bring her guest into the outdoor party. The Sisters were in stitches when she returned. This ‘fine young lady’ was none other than the cow…all dressed up in ribbons

Mother Mazzarello had a sense of humor! But she also knew something greater – the importance of lifting one another’s spirit.
