5th grader: Did Noah and his family eat any of the animals on the ark?
Me: Yeah, they ate the unicorn.
5th grader: WHAT?
Me: And the chimera.
5th grader: How is that possible? It has a snake head!
Me: And they ate a dragon, too.
5th grader: Are you serious?
Me: Of course not!


Question of the day

3rd Grader: Fr. Carter, why did Adam and Eve trust a talking a snake?

I was honestly stumped. :)

Me: What season is it?
3rd grader: Advent.
Me: What color do we wear?
3rd grader: Purple.
Me: Do we ever wear a different color?
3rd grader: Yeah, pink.
Me: Does anyone know what we call the Sunday that we wear pink? It's name starts with "g."
3rd grader: Glossary!

They were doing so well, too. :)

Can anyone find any holes in this?

I sympathize with XKCD today.

I spent my Halloween at my very first High School Kairos retreat. It was an awesome experience hearing many of the student leaders express their faith and I can tell a lot of hearts were healed.

My pastor yesterday said, "Doctor Who? Isn't that an old show?"

Apparently he didn't hear that it started again a decade ago. 

I came back from the auto-repair garage and they found nothing wrong with my car.

So, why was my car smoking on Sunday? I think my car was holding a conclave!

Bishop-elect Baron tells a story connecting Colbert to Tolkien to Cardinal Newman. But, the story is really about God's providence. Worth watching.
