Tuesday of the First Week of Advent

In today’s homily, Father Jerry tells the cute story of a children’s performance of the nativity scene at the local parish. “The story was read by the pastor and Carol’s were sung,” says Father.

At the climactic moment of the story, a heavenly host of children dressed as angels left the pews to gather around the manger and sing. But because there were so many angels, the view was blocked.

“One angel about nine years old, who was smaller than most of the other angels, ended up so far out on the fringes,” shared Father. She could not see what was happening and she cried out loudly for all the parish to hear. Her three words stopped the pastor in his tracks. What happens next was absolutely not listed in the program.
