Wow 3 followers! This is a little uplifing for me. When I started about a few months ago, getting only one follower was, well, making me wonder if it was worth it. I knew I wasn't a big wig like Mark Shea, The Crescat, The Anchoress (who was one of the lucky 150 bloggers around the world to be invited to the Vatican blogger summit May 1 or 2 of this year,) or other well-noted Catholic Bloggers. Now seeing 3 as of today, that gives me hope. I'll thank you all properly in the next few days hopefully as I can sit down and devote time to write a proper post, with 4 days off from work and no plans (hopefully with no substiution calls to replace a sick/vacationing co-worker).
So for now, just a little quick post to give you something sweet. One of my favourite blogs is What Does the Prayer Really Say, by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf of the U.S.A (who mostly celebrates mass at Holy Innocents in Manhattan, New York in the Extraordinary Form). One of his posts deals with a reader who sent a letter about a nasty reaction from an usher to a mother's kid who was a little too loud with his cars during an EF Mass. The post is here. One of the Comments caught my eye, by AnnAsher, who gave a simple, but beautiful explanation for her young children on why we go to Mass. Here is the comment with the bold part being the most important.
