"should I laugh or should I cry?"

You should have a big laugh. It's a parody piece.

A young friend is studying for the Diaconate and is now doing his pastoral work. He was assigned to CCD classes on the spur of the moment. He began the class by asking the students to say a prayer that they had memorized. One student pointed out that "we usually just read something from this book." He said, "no, we are going to say a prayer you have memorized." After going through a laundry list of popular prayers, it struck him that the class as a whole did not know ONE prayer from memory. That apparently included the Our Father.

The piece may be a parody, but it is closer to the Truth than we'd care to admit, N.O.
