I had just...

...literally, just finished writing the item below when I turned to my main task of the afternoon, which was to review a booklet on St Paul, published by Shrewsbury Catholic Cathedral to mark the Year of St Paul which starts on June 28th.

I opened it at random, and this is what I found: "...He made it very clear that all due reverence should be paid to the sacrament at this holy moment. He commented further that the sacrament must be kept seperate from socialising, and the appeasement of hunger." (page 11)

We should hunger - we should hunger and thirst after righteousness and for the Blessed Sacrament - that's the right sort of hunger! Being hungry for more of God in our lives.

I think we can all relate to boredom in church as a children.
The question is though why can't children just learn to endure the hour or so in a service without something to apease them?
I feel it is lack of instruction from parents. A child of three could be told what is expected from them for the church service and then afterwards they can be free to eat and play etc. A small child can gain a great deal by simply learning respect.
