bergoglio joke of the day
bergoglio and kasper were strolling hand in hand through a Catholic cemetery when bergoglio turned to kasper and said, "i was just thinking, wouldn't it be nice if non-Catholics -- even jews, muslims and atheists -- could be buried here too.... after all as long as they have "followed their conscience" they will be saved too.... "
kasper quickly replied, "why bury them? just burn them and save a lot of time and the environment."
bergoglio after reflecting on this said, "that is profound theology on your knees. can i quote you in my encyclical on the environment?"
kasper replied, "sure... just remember to spell my name right... i keep telling you... it's k-a-s-p-e-r not c-a-s-p-e-r!.... k-a-s-p-e-r not c-a-s-p-e-r!.... sheesh!"
bergoglio in embarassment responded, "oh my dear kasper please forgive me.... it's just that when i was in the seminary they taught us to think of casper the friendly ghost when we learned about the holy spirit... "
