Something to share

Yesterday at Mass youngest dd looked at a stain glass window and asked if that was Mary. I said yes. Then she asked what Mary was stepping on. I told her a serpent and then she asked why. I told her how through Mary sin was overcome.

Imagine how I felt when the readings and homily was about the serpent in the Garden of Eden.

Later on all of a sudden she outstretched her arms against the pew in front of me. She still had them outstretched when the Priest spoke in the homily about how Jesus died with outstretched arms.

I think she's going to be a saint someday.

The proper outlook is that ALL our children - even us - become saints. I just think you have someone there who has a significant lead over most of us:0)
