Prayers and such

So as the day dragged by today I decided that I would attend mass. Not that I usually go, but many of the kids are preparing for communion and they go to mass once a week, and today as my penance for having taken a week off work, the children from the breakfast club asked if I would go to mass with them.

I drag myself to the church, looking around making sure no-one could see me, and that there were no lightening forks hovering around to strike me down.

In I go and sit at the first pew, the kids all turn around and wave and invite me to sit with them, so off I go sloping down the aisle.

Mass goes fine.. nothing to it. I follow the lead, stand , kneel, mutter when I must. Then the priest invites anyone to the altar to say a prayer.

One brave little girl gets up and bounces down the aisle. Waits her turn to get to the stand.. people oooohhhing and ahhhhhing over her, and I'm thinking ' you wouldn't do that if you had her at 8.00 am this morning.. little madam.! '

So she stands with her hands joined in prayer and says

" I want to pray for all the dead people.... hope they get better soon. Amen"

There's something about the innocence of youth... We spend our lives trying to stamp it out.
