My three year old decided to avoid to get sprinkled with Holy Water after
night prayers yesterday. He ran from one end of the pew to the other until
his oldest brother grabbed him and held him. He started yelling, "I don't
want to get blessed!"
He also refers to Father as the 'messy guy' when he blesses us with Holy
Water. I guess he considers it too messy for him.
My five year old has started asking the darndest questions right after we
have received Our Lord in Holy Communion. Here are some of the latest:
What color is the Body of Christ?
Why do you have hair on your chest(I was wearing a shirt which showed all
three of my chest hairs)?
Why is there hair on your face?
Why do we have buttons on our shirts?
Why do you wear a tie?
Talk about our fallen nature! There I am, trying to make the time after
Communion a time of prayer, silence and thanksgiving, and instead I am
suddenly trying to formulate a reason why I am wearing a tie.
But why do we have buttons?
