"Although the Mass contains much instruction for the faithful, it has nevertheless not seemed expedient to the fathers that it be celebrated everywhere in the vernacular. The holy synod commands pastors and everyone who has the care of souls to explain frequently during the celebration of the Masses, either themselves or through others, some of the things that are read in the Mass, and among other things to expound some mystery of this most Holy Sacrifice, especially on Sundays and feastdays."
— Council of Trent, XII:8 (1562)

Funny and Inspired sayings of my Grandchildren
published 17 June 2011 by Dr. Ronda Chervin

The budding musician: When the priest was preaching at Pentecost that the laity should transform the world, I whispered to Max, pianist and composer of 15 years – “later I’ll ask you how music fits with transforming the world.” He replied on the way to the car “That’s simple. Music comes from the Holy Spirit.” Asked whether cacophony came from the Holy Spirit, he replied – “that’s not really music.”

The five year old: I casually mentioned something planned for the next day and asked what her father thought about doing that. “I don’t think Papa likes to think about the future at all.”
