Mass by Tiern:

This afternoon, Tiern made a Magnificat:
It was complete inside too:

Then, he held Mass:


Usually Tiern catches an extreme case of jimmies, wiggling his way through Mass.

Tiern asks me constantly: “How much longer until Mass is over?”

Dadoo: “15 minutes, we’re almost there…” (Trying to be encouraging)

Tiern: “Aach, it’s too LONG!”

Today the tables were turned.

After an extraordinarily long Homily (muffled by the microphone), I started to get a little fidgety, and Little Miss was moved to sing hallelujah and dance on the bed.

Dadoo: “How much longer is this Mass anyway?”

Tiern: “We’ve got plenty more to do Dadoo.” (Completely cheerful and busy doing all sorts of tasks). I was seated in the front row, so sneaking out without the priest noticing wasn’t possible. And besides, Little Miss and I were the only congregants.

Dadoo: “This is the longest Mass EVER!”

Tiern: “Pay attention, DADOO! You’re really going to like this next part.”

Later at 7:30pm…

There was even an evening Mass.

Dadoo: “Let’s go Tiern, we need to go pick-up Mama from work. Please put on your shoes.”

Tiern: “I’m having Mass right now.”

Dadoo: “Let’s wrap things up quickly.”

Tiern: “I can’t, it’s a long Mass (long form?).”
