"Waiting" by Jeff Gardner (above)
a serious picture for a silly idea
This weekend our 2nd graders had their First Reconciliation. Some were pretty nervous, reminding me that telling a priest what a jerk you were can be an intimidating thing to do.
I wonder what there is in Church law that says after absolution the priest can't give them a container of milk and a wrapped cookie. They would have to do their penance first and a space would have to be set up outside the sanctuary to eat the snack I suppose.
And then I thought, heck, adults probably want milk and cookies after their confessions too! Maybe the Knights of Columbus could purchase a mini-fridge for the priest's side of the confessional. Can you imagine?!
I don't think I am serious about this. It is fraught with problems and "issues" I am sure. The idea made me smile though. :)
