First Mass

My little brother John, who turns nine on Tuesday, served Mass for the first time this morning. It was a low Mass and he handed the priest the water & wine at the offertory and then carried the lavabo bowl. I watched from the pews and noticed his head turning to the side here and there but altogether he did a fine job. He's trying to learn the Confiteor and the other prayers said at the foot of the altar by heart.

Welcome John to that fine class of Catholics. No-longer laity but not clergy either.
