Daily Dose of Cuteness: Round 2: Sadie's Determination to Receive...

We stayed on campus for Mass today and Sadie apparently thought she had a chance of tricking a priest that she didn't recognize into giving her the Eucharist.  I was carrying her when I went up to receive and as I turned to go back to my seat I realized that she'd been sticking out her tongue and pointing to it, while we were at the front.  Thankfully this priest didn't fall for it either.  As I pointed out to Sadie: "If you're young enough to be carried up to the front, he knows you're probably too young to receive."  But hey, she's probably about halfway there!

When we returned to our seat I whispered: "Did you just try to trick the priest into giving you Jesus."  He answer was an emphatic: "Yes!"

I have a feeling we're going to have this conversation to come many times in the coming years.


  1. I bet she's going to be overjoyed when she finally receives her first holy communion. I saw a little boy at Mass try to receive two weeks ago and I thought of Sadie when I saw him. He had his hands perfectly placed to receive and he looked so disappointed when his mother guided him away from the priest.

  2. My goodness, she reminds me of little Blessed Imelda Lambertini...

    You've got quite the little saint in the making. Well done. :) Can't fault her little heart for such longing... may all our children be so blessed.

  3. The little sneak lol I have a feeling this is going to be a funny story that she will never forget

  4. Adorable!! I love your girls so much! I'll bet it gave the priest great joy to see a child desire Jesus so much - would that we all had such a hunger!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
