Thanks to Pewsitter, I saw this cute video, posted by Catholic News Agency with a write-up on this little boy from Columbia. Might this be a future vocation in the making? Maybe two, if we consider the little acolyte! They're speaking Spanish of course, but it does seem that "Mass proper" begins at the 1:30 mark. I understand that many a priestly vocation got off to a similar start. Who knows?
I understand there's a homily in here. If any of my readers can give a brief translation via the comments, I'm sure we'd all appreciate it. It appears that the "consecration" occurs at the 12:00 mark, with "bells" being supplied by "the congregation". But it appears to be followed immediately by Benediction. Hey - he's only three years old. Notice the prayers for "Papa Franciso" at 12:55.
Enjoy! With all the darkness in the world today, it's great to see some innocence and love for Jesus in children!
