More Room For Us

It never ceases to amaze me how rude people at church are about children. If a child makes a peep, all heads turn. I often wonder how mankind has continued all these years with people's attitudes about children. Tonight we had to attend what I refer to as the last chance Mass at 6 pm at St. Michael's Church. We were rushing because we had just returned from out of town. We managed to find a couple of seats and slipped in with the kiddos sitting on our laps. We had not been there four minutes when the couple next to us got up and moved away. My kids had not made a sound. We hadn't been there long enough for them to even get on someone's nerves. It totally pisses me off. And not to stereotype, but really, of all people, you would think that people who attend the Catholic Church would be a bit more tolerant of kids that are actually alive and attending mass.


  1. There are so many people out there who are just like these people. They act like kids are such an inconvenience at restaurants, baseball games, church and even - KIDS MOVIES!

  2. I struggle with getting angry at kids at church, but our preacher is very good in reminding us that they are so important!

    Matthew 19:14(NIV)

    14 Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdon of heaven belongs to such as these."
