  • Parents, this is why it is not a good idea to send your kids to catholic school.

    Dressing like nuns is not a good idea.

    This is my third grade reader.

    I am assuming that the word parish will never be a popular metatag, so this story will safely stay obscure.

    I like to read this book from time to time to see the stories that shaped my childhood.

    I especially like the chapter Gifts from God:

    "We shall all go to the seven o'clock Mass together this morning," Daddy said,

    "But the Mass is so long for me," said Karen.

    "I get tired because I can't read the big words in my prayer book."

    "That's because you don't know what the Mass is" said Daddy.

    Little did Karen know what a blessing it was to be so oblivious.
