Felt to add a story about St. Teresa of Avila who was noted for her humor and who apparently said, "A sad nun is a bad nun!" Further, “From silly devotions and sour-faced saints, good Lord, deliver us.”

Once, when she was travelling to one of her convents, St. Teresa of Ávila was knocked off her donkey and fell into the mud, injuring her leg. “Lord,” she said, “you couldn’t have picked a worse time for this to happen. Why would you let this happen?”

And the response in prayer that she heard was, “That is how I treat my friends.”

Teresa answered, “And that is why you have so few of them!”
