That's beautiful, Elizabeth! I remember that at the church where we were camping this summer the same thing happened, a little girl cantored. So wonderfully done! I have been doing that occasionally at our church, and it is nervewracking to say the least!

GOBBLER - well said. When we were travelling one summer, we went to Mass at a cathedral that we had never been to before. The deacon was talking about being open to life in terms of the Church's teachings on abortion and contraception. I was thrilled to hear his homily (is it called a homily when it is a permanent deacon?), as like you say, many shy away from those topics!

Children can give us confidence as adults. Their innocence, their determination, and eagerness can take us back to our first Holy Communion day, or another wonderful memory of Catholicism.
Our parish now has a priest who is like the priest we remember as children, wearing his cassock & being a reflection of what we can usually only imagine from our youth in parochial school.
Father has a quiet, soft voice, but a thoroughly Catholic moral message, of preserving the right of the unborn to be respected as a living human being.
Its' wonderful to see that he is not afraid to talk about issues that some of today's priests seem to "skirt around",
I can't wait to vote for protection of the most innocent of living creatures Children are proof that our Supreme Being is just that, Only He has the power to gift us with the child who is a joy of our own resemblance; Our Lord actually entrusts us with this little one to raise to be a good, happy, and moral person.

Living a life a little less ordinary!

outposts in your head!"

Our children's choir was singing at Mass today, and I was still stunned when a little girl (maybe 8 or 9 y.o.) walked up to the ambo for the Psalm. She carried a box with her, and she put it in front of the ambo, climbed up on it, and then cantered the Psalm, including all of the verses. You could tell she was nervous, but she did a beautiful job. I actually wanted to applaud (but I think that would have been frowned on, ha-ha). Most adults have stage fright too much even to lector, so I was extremely impressed!
