Sunday Best

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

We were sitting in church, waiting for Mass to start. My son looked to the back of the room and saw the Priest waiting to walk up. Xander gasped, turned around quickly, and said, “Oh no, here comes God!”

You’ve Got Mail

Monday, July 21st, 2014

My daughter loves opening the mail. Once, our church sent us a pamphlet listing upcoming events. When Sydney saw the religious image on it, her eyes opened wide and she exclaimed, “We got mail from God!”

Baby Baptism

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

When we attended a Catholic baptism, my daughter asked what they were doing at the front of the church. I told her they were pouring water on the baby’s head for a blessing. Then I explained that this was part of their beliefs and we had a different way of doing things. She responded, “That’s right, Mama. We drink our water.”

Full Speed Ahead

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

My daughter was riding in her grandmother’s car when she noticed a small religious statue on the dashboard. Her grandmother explained that the saint would protect them so they wouldn’t drive too fast or get in an accident. After a moment, Kate asked her to take it down. She explained, “I want to go fast and I don’t want him to stop us!”

In a Hurry

Monday, November 18th, 2013

As we were walking through the parking lot on our way to Mass one Sunday morning, the church bells started ringing. My son grabbed my hand and said, “Mommy, hurry! The show is about to start.”
