Today's Gospel Reading --
was about the Sadducees trying to trick Jesus with the question about the women who married seven brothers and died childless, and in heaven whose wife would she be. Now this was a trick question, because (as it says at the beginning of the reading) the Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection of the dead. And, as one priest quipped many years ago, "that's why they were sad, you see." Ba-da-bom!
