Davis and I went to the Seder Meal at our church on Friday night. We went because he is making his first communion in May and it is a wonderful ritual paralleling communion we celebrate every week.
He was none too pleased to be dragged from his friends on a very nice night, but off we went.
It is a very festive celebration and the children are encouraged to participate.
The dessert Matzoh (bread) goes missing and the children are rewarded with money for some leftover bread. Monsignor Pat handed a 2 dollar bill to each child. I didn’t know about this tradition, so it was a surprise for both of us.
Davis was almost giddy by the time we left….maybe the 5 glasses of grape juice had something to do with it.
He grabbed my hand on the way out and said “Well, I learned something new tonight”.
I got so excited and asked him what he learned and he said…
“Father Pat is rich”.
I guess we have a ways to go on the training!!!
