Our 3 1/2 year old son is accustomed to spending some time with his little nose near the floor during the prostrations of the Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem. After last week’s Liturgy of the Pre-Sanctified Gifts, which included such prostrations, this son felt the need to tell Father that the vents on the floor of the sanctuary were dusty & in need of vacuuming…& that someone had also dropped a quarter down there.
cf. munus parvulorum in precibus apud allahifideles expediendis –
How great to be reminded that the little ones belong to Him.

Adults usually look at something like this and think, “how cute, but he doesn’t know what they’re doing.” Not so. For children, acting things out is a form of learning and understanding. This little boy is operating on a level here that most adults don’t recognize because they’re no longer children. This little boy is identifying part of what the priesthood is as he acts it out. If it fits, he may well become a priest; if it doesn’t fit internally as well as other things, he won’t. But watch and hold your breath. This is serious business for this little boy.
I wish we had the prayer of St Ephrem more often- but of course it is most appropriate for the Great Lent
I would bet more than a few angels were smiling as well…
THAT should be on a mug with a daily prayer for vocations!
I got it by email so I don’t know if there are any copyrights or whatever… But I agree!
This past fall my family attended an ordination in Norcia, Italy. We sat in the back, as usual, because we have three small children who have a hard time sitting still during Mass. I was convinced my then 2 year old son had no idea what was going on, and saw next to nothing. However, shortly after returning home he decided that when he grows up he wants to be a priest and a monk. Several months later, he still wants to be a priest and a monk.
