A Jesuit, a Dominican, and a Franciscan are viewing a painting of Adam and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden. The Jesuit said, "This is Jesuit spirituality. They are so calm and happy." The Dominican said. "Not true. They are in ecstasy over the contemplation of God's gifts." "Bah!", said the Franciscan. "I don't think so. They have no clothes, no shelter, they have only an apple to eat, and they believe they're in paradise. This is clearly Franciscan influence."
