I discovered these priceless photos through our blogging friend Augustinian Canon Herr Alipius. As a convert I would like to ask you, our dear readers, some questions: I was not born and raised in a Catholic milieu, but I’ve learned from my experience that Catholics are not the sullen faced folk the media like to present them to be. Catholics know how to have fun! And a playful approach to the routines of the Church belongs also to an integral Catholic life. It can have educational effects, for example to bring children near to the Praxis of the Church. I’ve seen in a local antiquity shop a miniature altar, with all its lovely details, designed for boys whom their parents wish to lead into priesthood. Now, my question is: Is this impression of mine correct? And can you tell in what occasion these children were putting on this kind of attire? Judging from the photo they seem to be in the middle of a procession. Please do share with us your experience and information on this topic!
