The Annunciation as retold by Helen, age 4:
Mary lived in a house. She was poor.
One day, an angel came and said to Mary, "Hail Mary, the Lord is with you."
Mary thought, "Ohhhhh!"
"Mary, do not be afraid of me," said the angel. "You are pregnant."
Jesus was in Mary's tummy.--> I think God was in Mary's heart.

An Advent prayer by Monica, 9
When it is time
The Lord will come down
He'll show us his crown
Then we'll believe it's him.
We'll be shown the golden-paved highways we've learned in books of Jesus,
And we'll know it's Parousia because our handicapped friends will be able to play with us at recess!!!

Monique, age 4, set the Prayer Table. We then lit the candle and I asked her if there was anything she'd like to thank God for:
For kitty cats, Thanks be to God! (raising arms in air)
For the whole wide world, Thanks be to God!
For 160 years, Thanks be to God!
For 60 years, Thanks be to God!
For my whole world, Thanks be to God!
For the Holy Spirit in heaven, Thanks be to God!
