Mama: "Um, yes."
John: "Do you remember the cross?"
Mama: "Yeah . . ."
John: "Well, that is why you shouldn't speak rudely to me. Jesus doesn't want us to speak rudely."
Does a Catholic mama feel chagrined at being corrected by her three-year-old or does her heart soar with joy at his actually showing some understanding? I think hearts are capable of doing both at once.
