Really enjoyed that bit of precocious 5 year old humor you gave us! Thought you might like another.
This happened many years ago back in my former Diocese when it was suffering under the iron handed rule of one of the most liberal (and heretical) bishops in the US. This occurred in a parish where I spent my Deacon internship year 37 years ago.
They had just finished building a new Church according to the spirit of the modern age. Outside it appeared to be a high school gym and inside it looked like a high school auditorium. They had just proudly hung a profoundly ugly risen Christ on the wall above the altar.
The pastor was so proud.
At Sunday Mass, at one of those quiet moments that occasionally occur when you could hear a pin drop, the 5 year old brother of a priest friend of mine piped up in a high clear voice, “Mommy, look at that ugly looking Jesus!”
That bit of embarrassingly innocent truth brought about the eventual demise of the ‘ugly Jesus’ better than any amount of adult protest!
The devil can’t stand to be laughed at!
