Hey Guys,

Just thought I'd share a funny story told by my pastor last Sunday morning...

A mother and her 6 year old daughter were sitting in church one sunday morning when their old fashioned preacher asked the congregation to bow their heads in prayer. He bowed his head, closed his eyes, and said dramatically "OH HOLY LORD! Our lives are nothing but seconds in the vast expanses of time. Without you, we are but dust!". With that, the little girl pulled on her mother's jacket sleeve and said with a genuinely confused look on her face, "Mommy, what's but-dust?"

:lol:

Kat, that is really funny. I like your pastor's sense of humour; I am sure it makes attending church a lot more fun.

My 5 year old daughter likes to use the telelphone now and then; she has fun pressing the numbers as I recite to her the phone numbers of family members. It is actually good practice for her since it helps her with her number recognition. Well, the other day, she asked me what God's telephone number was. I told her that is a good question, but I unfortunately didn't know. It was such a sweet moment. :P

You could tell her that God's phone number is "Et Cum Spiri 2-2-0." <_<

P.S. One of the priests at my former parish told several amusing stories about the children at the school:

One morning, Father was having Mass for the school students and was talking about the saint whose feast day they were celebrating. He went on to say that saints "are ordinary people who do extraordinary things." Father then asked the children if there was someone who did extraordinary things in death as well as in life. There was a pause, and one boy raised his hand and replied "Elvis!"

At this same parish, they sell "shopping certificates" for many of the retailers in the area and a percentage of the money goes to the school. One morning, Father was at the school and one of the teachers showed him a student's religion test paper. One of the questions read "What does the priest say at the end of the Mass?" to which the student wrote "Please use Shopping Certificates." (BTW, the correct answer was "The Mass is ended, go in peace.")
