He actually fell asleep for about ten minutes before the 1st reading. After his cat nap, he was awake and golden, patiently listening and looking around in awe at all the beautiful decorations. He especially seemed to like the choir loft - something our regular church doesn't have.
Anyway, as we made our way up the Communion line, Vince kept stopping at regular intervals, dropping to his knees and saying, "Hi Jesus." He knows that we typically genuflect in the center aisle upon entering or leaving a church, and always right before I receive the Blessed Sacrament. However, Gram didn't know that, so she poked me with a grin and said, "Future priest, eh?"
Ha ha ha - I can only pray, right?
But I admit my heart swelled to the size of Texas. It must've doubled when, after I received, he reached up for me to carry him. Once I had him secured on my hip, we kissed as usual with the prayer that Jesus use my lips as His own so He could kiss Vincent in blessing. I always whisper to Vincent, "Give Jesus kisses" after reception in the hopes that he learns early on that Christ is truly present in the Sacrament.
The rest of the day was pretty much spent eating and enjoying time with the family. Vince was in his glories chasing after Alliya (or, as can be seen in the video below, torturing Pop).
I hope each of you had a blessed Easter as well!
