Look, Mom. It's Jesus!

Nellie is the catechist and mother of a four year old boy, Neil, who generally appears to need more movement than many other children of the same age, verbal, and loud. His work is often in the gray area between work and play. He and his best friend were at the cenacle. Then Neil started taking things from the cenacle over to the altar in their atrium. Nellie reached a "That's it!" moment and headed over to the altar area with just enough presence of mind to ask first about Neil's work. He unlocks the tabernacle, opens the door, and says, "Look, Mom. It's Jesus!"
