Kids say the darndest things... at Mass

My favorite experience was while helping a neighboring pastor handle his first confession and first communion celebrations. He asked the children during his homily what their favorite part of the Mass was. One young lad shouted out that it was 'COMMUNION TIME'! Feeling quite satisfied that he had impressed this lad with the significance of the Eucharist he made the mistake of walking over to him with his microphone to ask why communion was his favorite part of the Mass to which he replied: "That means there are only five more minutes before this whole thing is over and we can go outside to play!"

Not only did that answer bring the entire church to laugh, but it was also the last time that pastor every used a 'dialogue' homily when kids were in attendance!!
