Salve ReJESUS and a Protestant Mass


Ah, from the mouth of babes!

Here are two funny episodes from Marshall family life.

During evening devotions, we sing hymns. The other night I introduced “Hail Holy Queen Enthroned Above” which has the Latin refrain “Salve, Salve, Salve Regina.”

Our three-year-old must have a Protestant fear of Marian music, because we overheard him singing: “Salve, Salve, Salve ReJESUS.”

My wife and I can hardly keep from laughing.

Here’s another one. I was attending Holy Mass with my seven-year-old son at a Hispanic parish. During the homily, the priest walked around the Church and asked frequent questions to the people present – like a catechism class. I don’t think that my son has ever seen this, because the priest stays stationed at the ambo/pulpit at the parish where we usually attend. As we watched the priest walk up and down the aisle during the homily, my son leaned into me and asked, “Dad, why are we at a Protestant Mass.”

Ah, from the mouth of babes.
