Wanted: A Saint in the Second Grade

Me, driving Timothy to school: Wow, second grade! This is a special year when you'll receive the sacraments of Holy Eucharist and First Reconciliation. Isn't that exciting?

Timothy: What's First Reconciliation?

Me: Remember when we sometimes go to church Saturday evening for confession? Well, that's Reconciliation, when we confess our sins to the priest.

Timothy, in all seriousness: Oh, well I won't need to do that . . . I don't have any sins.

This, from the same person who yesterday called his brother an idiot. I'm thinking that Miss Hoffman has her work cut out for her.
