A word to parents...

A little story with a big message...
Second grade child, worried about receiving Holy Communion: "Father, I didn't go to Mass last Sunday."
Me: "Did you miss Mass on purpose?"
Child: "My Mommy and Daddy didn't want to go."
Me: "Well, it wasn't your fault. You couldn't drive yourself to Mass."
Child (with incredulous look): "Father, I don't even have my own car!"

Moral of the story: Parents, either get yourselves and your family to Mass on Sunday, or else buy a car for your second grader.
