(Thanks to Angelmeg at Transcendental Musings for this one.)

A Franciscan, a Benedictine, and a Dominican were discussing which Order God loved best. The debate was becoming very, very heated. They each had extremely valid points in their favor, and they decided that there was only one way that they could ever get a definitive answer. They would write a letter to God, and let Him decide which Order was the one He preferred above all others in the world.

A few days after they sent their letter they received a reply on beautiful vellum stationary. It was written in the most majestic script any of them had ever beheld and this is what it read:

My Dear Children,

You are all cherished members of my household, and I love each and every one of you equally. Please stop your petty bickering and get back to the good work that you should be

Your All Forgiving Father

God SJ

Carolina--I *like* the Jesuits.

But if you want to use the joke yourself, just substitute O.P. for S.J.

p.s. I like the Dominicans too.
