Mine was that I thought that God was the one ringing the bell during concecration. angel laughing It was not until one day when I was about 6 or 7 ( yep I know that is late but at least I did not still believe in Santa Claus rolling eyes ) and one of the acolytes fell over during concecration and I saw the bell in his hand that I was dispelled of this thought. The loss of my innocence. sad I had always been amazed by that small feat and it was one of the ways that I knew that God was real because afterall he had to be real if he had angels ringing bells in mass. What is a silly thing that you believed about God when you were small. Like my 8 year old daughter always says, "God can do anything Mummy".

When I was very young I would lie in the grass looking at clouds and picture Jesus and the Apostles walking around on them and He was still telling them parables.

First Communion. The host stuck to the roof of my mouth. I attended a parochial school and we had been instructed in religion class NEVER to touch the host with our tongues. But the host remained stuck to the roof of my mouth for a couple of minutes and I couldn't swallow, so I finally flicked the host with the tip of my tongue. I was mortified and thought for sure I was going to hell. I went to confession a few days later and confessed my sin to the priest. There was a small moment of silence, and the priest (who to this day I swear I remember chuckling briefly) asked me who told me this was a sin? I told him it was the nun who taught our religious instruction. I was given absolution and went on my way.

Two days later, one of our parish priests made an unannounced visit to our class and asked Sister if he could speak with the class. Father then set us straight about what constitutes a mortal sin and made an emphasis to say that touching the host with our tongue to dislodge it from the roof of our mouths was an example of a NON mortal sin. laughing

AHHHHH!!!!! Catholic school days and the nuns. I remember these well. The sad thing is that many of the kids today will never experience that.

My little brother thought there was a button on the bottom of the chalice that he pushed to make the bells ring.

My favorite story is about my daughter. She was about 3, and my sister and she were playing I Spy in the church while I was finishing up with my choir. Little Gracie said, "I spy God's pants."


Aunt Mary says, "God's pants? Do you mean that statue?"


Long story short, she was looking at the Tabernacle curtains, and, knowing God was behind there, she figured those two strips of fabric were His pants!

She's 16 now, and I'm still telling that one....

Not me, but my dad.

When he was little, his mother was explaining about Jesus being present in the Tabernacle. Dad asked, "How does He fit in there?"

His know-it-all sister replied, "Don't be silly, he sits down."
