Today, we had a class liturgy with the one of the priests at our school. It was a very special time. Our priest talked about Easter, Lent and forgiveness with the children. He also asked them how they could be like Jesus, what being like Jesus ‘looks like’ and he explained that if we need to be more like Jesus, we should pray to God asking for that.
At the end of the liturgy, one boy walked up to the priest and said,
“That made me so happy just then, I could cry!”
The priest had a chuckle, and said, “Oh, it’s alright, just smile about praying!”
The boy then clarified,
“Uh, they’d be happy tears, Father!”
