When my son did communion I noticed the altar boy standing in the corner. I was so inspired by all the young children, the beautiful innocence, the trust they give and the dedication given to join and understand tradition. Children are truly an empty vessel. I find it so ironic that we think we can teach and fill this vessel, when this emptiness is something we should all learn from. When I am able to listen and learn, when I harbor empathy and understanding deep within my soul, I feel like I can understand the child I saw standing in the shadows of the church, with all his earnestness.
