“Our Father, Who does art in heaven, Harold is His name.  Amen.”


A Sunday religious education teacher was driving to mass with her children.  She looked at them and asked, “And why do you need to be quiet in church?”

Her bright little daughter replied, “Because people are sleeping.”


After his baby brother was baptized in church, Jeremy cried all the way home in the back seat of the car.  His father asked him three times what was wrong?

The boy finally replied, “That priest said he wanted us to be brought up in a Christian home, but I wanted to stay with you guys.”


A six year old boy was overheard praying, “Lord, if you can’t make me a better boy, it’s ok.  Don’t worry about it.  I’m having a real good time just like I am.”


A father was at the beach with his children when their four year old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.

“Daddy, what happened to him?”  the son asked.  “He died and went to heaven, the father replied.

The little boy thought for a moment and then asked his dad, “Did God throw him back?”


A four year old girl prayed, “And forgive us our trash baskets, as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.”


A mother was cooking pancakes for her sons breakfast, when the boys began arguing over who was going to get the first pancake.  Their mother saw an opportunity to teach them a moral lesson.  She said that if Jesus were sitting here, he would say, “Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.”

The older brother turned to his little brother and said, “Ryan, you be Jesus!”


A wife invited some people over for dinner.  After everyone sat down at the table, the mother turned to her six year old daughter and asked her to say the blessing.

“I wouldn’t know what to say,” the little girl replied.

“Just say what you hear mommy say,” the mother answered.

The little girl bowed her head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”


About the Author

Welcome to A Catholic Moment! My name is Laura Kazlas and I’m the creator and founder of A Catholic Moment. Catholics read a lot of different things on the internet these days, but this website is a place for Catholics to read, reflect, and discuss the daily readings for Mass. Our website is run entirely by a group of volunteer writers who have a genuine love for the scriptures that we have for Mass each day. I was personally raised by atheists, but came to believe in God and was baptized because of the words in sacred scripture. I later became a Catholic because of the Mass. The first time my husband took me to Mass, I thought it was the most holy, beautiful sense of worshiping God that I had ever experienced. I still do. My husband John and I have been married for 30 years. We have a son, a daughter, two granddaughters, and a cat. I currently serve as the coordinator of Catholic prison ministry in the Archdiocese of Portland Oregon, in the USA.
