In the name of The Father, and of the Son...

Saucy Girl has a lil' bff at school this year, G. G is not Catholic. As a matter of fact, G's Daddy is a Protestant pastor. G & Saucy apparently were praying yesterday that I wouldn't be able to make it to the school in time for pick-up and they could go home together (note: twice I've been stuck in traffic trying to get to the school so G's momma took Saucy home with them). During their prayer, Saucy instructed G on The Sign of The Cross.

At bedtime Saucy described the scenario to me. Of course I just about died as I thought of G telling her Mommy & Daddy all about crossing herself! :) I told Saucy that G & her family are not Catholic so they do not cross themselves. Her puzzled little face looked at me while she asked, "Then what do they do when they pray?" I told her that usually they just bow their head and close their eyes. She asked if they make 'praying hands' also.

After thinking about it for a minute Saucy said, "Well, she got the hang of it".

As a little Protestant girl, I was always jealous of the sign of the cross. It's just so cool. I went to Catholic high school and signed to my heart's content.

my kids constantly ask 'is so and so a Catholic?' or 'are they Christian?' i think they are finally understanding the concept that all Catholics are Christian, but not Christians are Catholic.
