This morning in church, a couple sat in front of us with a baby and a little boy about 3 years old. At the beginning of Mass, the woman identified herself as the grandmother. She seemed in charge of the little boy while the man held and rocked the baby. The child was very interested in everything about church. The woman patiently answered his questions and showed him where Jesus was in the artwork and on the large crucifix. When it came time to respond, the little boy did the same best he could, even holding his hands the way his grandmother was. At one point he answered with a loud, “Amen!” He was too cute to watch.
I Found God today in an enthusiastic child.
