We prayed the Stations of the Cross tonight
I love this. When we began six years ago, Una was only nearly four and Sebastian two, and I was lugging baby Gaby around the house. This year, Una asked to lead the Stations. The toddlers especially love it, the moving from place to place through the house and singing the Stabat Mater (well--they don't know the words, but they sort of bluff their way through). It's one of the things we do that is really becoming a tradition I know the kids will carry with them throughout their lives. And it is so decidedly Catholic! You have to be a convert to the Faith like me to truly appreciate what that means. I revel in it. I wish I could exude church incense from my pores. Know what I mean? What, are you a convert too?
