Sunday evening we attended Life Teen Mass as usual. We always try to sit in the front row for a number of reasons, but primarily so Douglas will pay attention and watch the Mass. After receiving Eucharist and a moment in prayer I watched my older daughter, recently confirmed, serving as Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist while the choir sang Hosanna (by Hillsong United).
I glanced to my right to check that my little man is behaving. This is what I see (yes, later I snuck the iPhone out to click a picture)…
And yes, there were tears in my eyes that my little three year old recognizes God is present in his life and heart.
