Sunday Mass Sans Kids

William was fighting some sort of bug yesterday that left him with a horribly high fever.  So Brian and I found ourselves attending mass by ourselves at separate times.  Normally I like to attend mass as a family.  It's tough, during this season of babies and toddlers and preschoolers, but I think the dedication leaves a dramatic mark on their souls.

But, but, every once in a great while we are graced with a situation that forces us to attend mass without kids or even by ourselves.

"How'd it go?" I ask Brian when he returned from the Basilica last night.

"Hey, did you know there's this thing called a homily that comes right after the Gospel?"

"Yeah and did you know there are two whole readings before the Gospel?"

"Yeah.  And I was really surprised to learn that most people are respectful and reverent during the consecration."

"Hmmm," I reply, "What a novel idea!"
