Childlike on Sundays

My almost-two-year-old loves Sunday Mass at our parish. He knows that in the gym, next to the main building, awaits his utopia of tricycles and other toys. As soon as we settle ourselves in the pew on Sunday, he is already making his way over. Unfortunately, that means either my...
