Out of the mouths of babes

At my first of two Masses for the Vigil of Christmas this evening, a little boy energetically called out, as I elevated the chalice with the Precious Blood of our Lord after the consecration, "Is that baby Jesus?"

After the conclusion of the Lamb of God, I used his words as a reminder to the people of what the Eucharist is and of the necessity of being worthy to receive him, of being in the state of grace.

I wasn't going to do so, but when I heard his question I knew it was sent from God.

May the Lord bless that little boy and keep him close to him all the days of his life.
