Colbert & Martin make us realize that Catholics have fun!

Possibly SIN-a-Man was good to give up for lent, Peter (the rock headed Simeon), a very close fishing and Galilean friend and companion for Jesus, especially after He, Jesus's closest friend lost his head; is often seen with Jesus, and now Pope Francis all walked the same path together laughing and enjoying this life on earth as a step to enjoy this kingdom as they see their lives and others unfold. I'm sure a night of mind bending experience from dreams, prayers, laughing, and existing along with his companions and Jesus, Pope Francis starts the day with a very big smile on his face. You can see he, Pope Francis, sees our existence, the world, universe and life in general in a different light than a couple of friendly comedians. I remember down in Africa asking some Juniors to write their own version of the prayer "Our Father", one started with "Hey Pops" and it exploded from there; that's the kind of catholic I think Colbert is and with Martin, who would explain it's true meaning: they would make a great team.
