Laugh – Come ‘on Sourpuss, Laugh it Up to Your Health

The healing power of laughter
by The Dailey Sun~Chronicles

Laugh!

It is great for the mind, body, and spirit.

It may seem odd to find humor when facing a serious issue. Research with cancer patients have shown that laughter can help lift the spirit and connect with others.

 

Many benefits of laughter . . .

St. Augustine wrote “Serve the Lord with Laughter”

 

Humor heals the physical body, strengthens the spirits, and is great for mental health.

 

Laughter may help you feel better about yourself and the world around you. Laughing leads to physical changes in the body.

 

After laughing for just a few minutes, feeling better may last for hours.

 

Physiologically, laughing has multiple benefits:

 

1)    Enhances oxygen intake.

 

2)    Stimulates both the lungs and heart.

 

3)    Relaxes the muscles throughout the body.

 

4)    Triggers the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.

 

5)    Eases digestion by soothing the stomach muscles.

 

6)    Relieves pain.

 

7)    Balances blood pressure.

 

8)    Improves mental functions.

 

9)    Enhances alertness.

 

10)    Boosts creativity.

 

11)    Improves memory.

Italian Who Brings All Christians Together

by Robert Ellsburg

St. Pope John XXIII led efforts for ecumenicalism of all people.

On October 28, 1958, a new pope greeted the Church from the balcony overlooking St. Peter’s Square. There stood the smiling, rotund figure of Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, the son of peasants and recently the patriarch of Venice. “I am called John,” he said.

In appearance, and in almost every other respect, Pope John XXIII stood in contrast with his gaunt and otherworldly predecessor, Pius XII. Gregarious and open, John exuded an enthusiasm for life that in itself set a positive tone for his pontificate and raised hopes for a season of change. These hopes were answered by the astonishing announcement that he intended to convene an ecumenical council, the first in almost a hundred years. He spoke of the need to “open the windows” of the Church and to let in fresh air. It was the signal of an extraordinary renewal, an era of openness and positive dialogue between the Church and the modern world.

On October 4, 1962, on the eve of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, Pope John made a rare trip outside of Rome to visit Assisi, to pray to the Blessed Mother and St. Francis for the success of the Council. It was a reminder of his deep Franciscan roots. As a young boy of fourteen, while enrolled in the junior seminary of Bergama, he was received as a Third Order Franciscan. “Oh! The serene and innocent joy of that coincidence,” he later said. “A Franciscan tertiary and cleric on his way to the priesthood, drawn in, therefore by the same cords of simplicity, still unconscious and happy, that was to accompany us up to the blessed altar that was later to give us everything in life.”

There were many steps along the way to the Chair of St. Peter: Apostolic Visitor to Bulgaria and then Turkey, nuncio to France, and later Patriarch of Venice. But Pope John always acknowledged his familial bonds with the followers of St. Francis. In 1959, just before his election as pope, he presided over a celebration marking the 750th anniversary of Pope Innocent III’s approval of the Franciscan Rule. At the end of his remarks, he said, “Beloved sons! Allow us to add a special word from the heart to all those here who belong to the peaceful army of the lay Tertiaries of St. Francis: I am your brother Joseph.” Having launched Vatican II, Pope John did not live to see it completed. Dying of cancer, he retained his humor and humility. “My bags are packed,” he said, “and I am ready to go.” From his deathbed he dictated a final message of hope for the Church he loved:

Now more than ever, certainly more than in past centuries, our intention is to serve people as such and not only Catholics; to defend above all and everywhere the rights of the human person and not only those of the Catholic Church; it is not the Gospel that changes; it is we who begin to understand it better…. The moment has arrived when we must recognize the signs of the times, seize the opportunity, and look far abroad.

Pope John XXIII died on June 3, 1963. In a few brief years he had won the hearts of the world, and his passing was universally mourned. He was canonized in April 2014.


In convening the Second Vatican Council, Saint John XXIII
showed an exquisite openness to the Holy Spirit.
He let himself be led and he was for the Church a
pastor, a servant-leader. This was his great service to
the Church; he was the pope of openness to the Holy Spirit.

Life Lessons from Uncle Dan and Aunt Holly:

Pentecost Sunday ’18                           Happy Birthday (#1975) to the Christian Church!

What we have heard (Uncle Dan would be #70 today!) and learned:

Dan and Holly. They had a “quiet classiness” that is rare to see these days.

One of Dan’s main points of advice was “don’t give people a reason to say no.” That also means not to deliberately bring negative attention to oneself.

I believe that it’s better to be lost in the crowd than to be remembered for the wrong reasons. I’ve found this important to remember when job searching and negotiating office politics.

I agree with Henderson Louis Dailey.

Someone is Looking Forward to Becoming an Angel

… on being a guardian angel… Perhaps during eternity, I will be assigned to be the official God-designated ‘guardian angel’ or ‘intelligent, powerful spirit’ for someone like my daughter or a grandchild. In the meantime, this is a role that I gladly take-on.

Guardian Angels are in the Lower Third Triad to the Right

As St. Augustine stated, ‘angel’ is the name of these eternal being’s office; what they do, their role, just call me an ANGEL.
“If you seek the name of their nature, it is ‘spirit’;
if you seek the name of their office, it is ‘angel’:
from what they are, ‘spirit’,
from what they do, ‘angel’.”

Lenten Trials – Lesson of Redemptive Suffering

Sometimes in going through our own “Good Fridays,” we will have special need of the support of friends and family, the spiritual guidance of a good priest or someone else who excels in discernment. Perhaps even the help of a doctor or licensed counselor. In any event, persevere through your trials. Remember that Jesus who humanly experienced the anguish of feeling forsaken by God (Mt. 27:46) is the same Jesus who moments later committed his spirit into his Father’s hands (Lk. 23:46), knowing that the Father will test us to foster our spiritual perfection (see Heb. 2:10; 5:7-10), but he will never truly abandon us. Quite to the contrary. Keep that in mind this Holy Week and beyond.

The secret to redemptive suffering, Jesus lets us know, is docility in discipleship: “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven” (Mt. 19:14).

Being childlike is definitely not the same as childishness. The latter evinces the immaturity that often goes with childhood. The former bespeaks the radical trust children can often exhibit toward their parents, a trust we don’t like to be reminded that we need to keep exercising in adulthood as the Good Lord’s disciples. The world chafes at childlikeness, precisely because of the radical trust and death to self it requires. Well, it pays to be a docile sheep if you’re following the right Shepherd, who will test and prune like no coach or other earthly mentor, but who also love us and bring us to the greatest fulfillment possible . . . if only we trust.

Jesus leads the way in modeling this radical discipleship, asking his Father in heaven three times to take away his cup of suffering during his Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, yet always saying submitting his human will to the divine will (Mt. 26:37-44). And so, as we will learn again in the coming days, Jesus appears to be at his ignominiously weakest during his Passion and Death, and yet they paradoxically become the occasion of his greatest triumph—and of our greatest triumph (see 2 Cor. 12:8-10).

Right Reverend D. K. Fisher’s Opinions

We spent a night and day in Menlo Park speaking of religion. David Fisher was on his way to minister to Montanans. We met at a dinner along the CalTrain tracks sponsored by Street Life Ministries of Redwood City.

Fisher explained, “Money answers all things, money distracts from God, and money causes crime. Therefore, I would rather I have only the money I need to answer the things in life I need it to answer. If I have too much money, it will distract me from God and attract people who are criminals.”

  • The more organized you faith is, the less God can work through you.
  • Organization is always good when it is God running the organization.
  • Most people are exposed to micro-managed faith. The person is the manager, not God.
  • God is not allowed to flow in their life.

Let God flow in you and your life, through the name of Jesus Christ.

Open Letter to Readers of “Wandervogel Diary” and Supporters of The Redemption Project

 

written from “Estrella Vista”, 800 Seaman Road, HC-65, Box 243 A, Alpine, West Texas  79830; telephone (432) 371-4257 –

DaileySun@outlook.com

 

Dear Family and Friends,

 

Authentic issues of “Wandervogel Diary,” passed into the afterlife with Dan L. Dailey

in November, 2016.

 

Being his younger brother of five and a half years, I arrived at Estrella Vista

– originally named the Wandervogelhaus –

on December 11, 2016.

 

That date is between the birthdays of Dan and David’s only blood-sister, Mary Christine Dailey Schultz Neumann [12-10-1949], and “baby brother” David Arthur Francis Niklas Dailey [12-12-1953].

 

So in the spirit which is part tradition, genetics, respect, and forward searching,

I am asking diary readers to respond with their best efforts to keep the vision,

mission, goals, and projects of The Redemption Project moving into the right direction.

 

What Dan L. attempted was never a one-man-job.

He will remain the “face” of the movement and one main source

of inspiration for all of us and many more “movers and shakers” to come. I praise Dan’s assignment of Lone Heron to administer The Redemption Project, which I know I could not be successful leading.

 

Although I am a writer with great interests in justice, politics, and human development, my focus has been with sports, political satire, public health and safety, and comedy – all kinds of humor, including stand-up entertainment.

 

I think humor has its place. In The Redemption Project, it needs to be applied carefully,

timely, in the proper situation, among a suitable audience, etc., etc., etc.

 

Your support of Lone Heron, Dan’s son Henry, and many others working on the project

will be appreciated very much.

 

Where ever I may be writing my funny stuff,

I will be praying, hoping, and thinking about your future successes.

 

All the best,

 

 

David
