A Jesuit arrived in Rome and wanted to go to St Peter’s Basilica. He asked a Dominican to show him the way. “Father,” said the Dominican, “I’m afraid you’ll never find it. It’s right in front of you.”
This joke is one of twenty in Jesuits Telling Jokes, a new book by Belgian Jesuit Nikolaas Sintobin SJ, which uses gentle Jesuit humour to introduce the reader to the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).
Nikolaas Sintobin is a Jesuit and internet pastor based in Amsterdam (The Nehterlands) He is specialized in Ignatian spirituality and pedagogy. As a blogger (www.inalledingen.org), he developed his own pedagogical model using YouTube-films to help people to deepen and develop their interior lives.
