From the Mouths of “Babes”

The following is from 5th grade catechist, Bob, from Lemont, IL. Enjoy! 🙂

During class last evening, we were gathered around our prayer table practicing our required prayers for 5th grade.  I asked the class what other prayer they would like to practice that we have not done as a class yet.  One of the students blurted out, “lets practice the prayer we use when we go to confession.”  Then another student raised his hand and said “I know that one, it’s called the Act of Concussion.”

Needless to say, we all had a great laugh after that. 

Have a Great Day. Bob
