Update on Kyrie's 1st Communion

There was one other incident that I forgot to relate in my earlier post, during the Mass where Kyrie received her First Communion.

Throughout his homily, Fr. David asked the kids a few basic questions. Every time he did this, Kyrie raised her hand, wiggling in her seat with eagerness to answer the question. (The other kids, when they did answer, did not usually raise their hands. I have wondered about this dynamic before.)

Towards the end of the homily, when Fr. David asked a question, Kyrie raised her hand as usual, and none of the other kids were answering. Fr. David tried ignoring Kyrie's hand, and then eventually said, "Ok, someone besides Kyrie answer this one", or something to that effect.

It was so reminiscent of my own childhood, and so typical of Kyrie. The whole congregation was mildly amused. I thought it was very cute.


  1. oh yeah, you were always one of the first to answer ^_^ ahhh memories... remember sleep-overs and reading redwall?

  2. Hmm. I definitely remember sleepovers. And rollerskating with you. I don't remember reading Redwall, though. Reading through the Wikipedia article on it is not helping much, although the name of Cluny sounds familiar... Now I'm wondering how many books from my childhood I've completely forgot about. Probably a lot, since I read so many and only remember a handful.

  3. Test. By Anna.

  4. It has been awhile since I've visited your blog and long story short, I lost your site and just found it back yesterday.

    Maybe you no longer remember me and from the look of your wonderful four children proves that it has been a little while.

    Anyway, I just thought that I would say hello and like the books that you've read and forgot some of them, I will understand if you no longer remember me!


  5. Nope, I haven't forgotten you. :) Peace.
