I've been working on getting John Michael and David to pay attention in church since they want to receive Eucharist in the worst kind of way. Every Sunday, they go up to the altar, carefully fold one hand over the other and look up at the priest expectantly. JM almost got Fr. Rob once...Anyway, today I reiterated to David the importance of saying the prayers along with the congregation and he took on the task with great attention. He managed to get through about every other word as the congregation spoke, "Lord I am not worthy to receive you but only say the word and I shall be healed." Then he turned to me triumphantly and repeated, "Mom, only the say the word - I can do that....See? WORD!"
