CNA asked ChatGPT to tell us a Catholic joke. It took a few tries before realizing we had to ask for a “clean” Catholic joke. Here’s what it said.
“One Sunday morning, a priest was giving a sermon on the importance of forgiveness. He asked his congregation, ‘How many of you have forgiven your enemies?’ Everyone in the congregation raised their hand, except for one elderly woman in the front row. The priest was surprised and asked the woman, ‘You mean you haven’t forgiven your enemies?’
“The woman replied, ‘I don't have any enemies, Father.’ The priest was taken aback and said, ‘That’s very unusual. How old are you?’ ‘I’m 98 years old,’ the woman replied.
“The priest was amazed and said, ‘98 years old and you don’t have any enemies? That’s incredible! Tell me, what’s your secret?’ The woman leaned forward and whispered, ‘I’ve outlived all of them.’”
Finally, CNA asked ChatGPT to come up with a schedule for a parent who has kids and who works eight-hours a day but would like to follow Pope Francis’ advice on prayer.
ChatGPT responded with a rather helpful, very specific schedule:
5:30 a.m. — Wake up and spend 15 minutes in personal prayer and reflection.
6 a.m. — Get ready for the day and help kids get ready for school.
7 a.m. — Eat breakfast with the family and read a short passage from the Bible or other spiritual text.
7:30 a.m. — Commute to work.
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. — Work an eight-hour shift.
