SPEEDING TICKET

A young man, on the way to visit his girlfriend in Toronto was caught speeding through one of the small towns just a few miles from his destination.  The officer sauntered up to the car as the young man fished for his license and registration. With the hint of a wry smile across his face, the officer placed both elbows on the window of the car so he could get real close and spoke in a deep voice, “Son, I’ve been waiting all day for you.”

“Sorry officer,” the young driver said. “I got here just as fast as I could.”

CONSIDER THIS

Probably he got the speeding ticket and very probably he had to pay it too. But isn’t it true that more often than not quick wit and a sense of humour can help diffuse a difficult situation?

I'm a Jesuit from Malta, an artist at heart and madly in love with all things beautiful and soulful: music, painting, sculpture, photography, film, theatre, poetry, good company, good food, good wine and more. I believe that beauty is a wonderful entry into the mystery of the God “whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” God can be sensed in all things if and when we engage in a long, loving look at the real that surrounds us. I consider myself a seeker with bottomless curiosity, an eternal student of life, exploring fresh and creative ways to proclaim the Good News in the hope of helping fellow pilgrims and seekers to embrace real and radical changes that will lead to conversion and transformation.

  1. Part of my journey has been to intentionally pray for and do my part to have a sense of humor, especially about my foibles. Life is a lot more fun!
