My #3 is receiving his first Holy Communion next week. Bad me had read and misunderstood the schedule changes.
So, instead of bringing him to church today at 8.30 a.m., I conveniently drop by at 10.30 am, thinking of bringing him for confession. Turned out that the children had to be in church from 8.30 am for some session with their teachers before confession.
Later, when I picked him up at 12 noon, I asked if his cathecism teacher asked him why he was so late? He told me yes, teacher asked. And his reply?
My reply – “Aiyoyo, I never teach you to lie like that, ok? Our house is less than 10 minutes from church and you arrived 2 hours later and you tell teacher you kena traffic jam? Next time, just tell teacher your mom made a mistake or blame your papa not free or something, ok? You must tell the truth.”
#3 insisted – Real one what? Just now when we came out from McDonalds, got a little bit of jam what. (McD is only 3 minutes away from church!!!!)
BTW, to those of you who are Catholics, I wonder if you still remember your first Holy Communion? This is the first time one of my son is receiving it.
Do the other Christian denominations have something similar to celebrate the children ‘coming of age’? The 16 years old youths are having their confirmation next Saturday along with my kid’s first Holy Communion.
I wrote ‘L.O.V.E. is spelled T.I.M.E’ about last year event.
