Little Altar Boy...


Somehow, I missed this one:

Little Altar Boy
Little altar boy, I wonder could you pray for me?
Little altar boy, for I have gone astray
What must I do to be holy like you?
Little altar boy ,oh, let me hear you pray

Little altar boy, I wonder could you ask our Lord
Ask him, altar boy, to take my sins away
What must I do to be holy like you?
Little altar boy, please, let me hear you pray

Lift up your voice and say a prayer above
Help me rejoice and fill that prayer with love
Now I know my life has been all wrong
Lift up your voice and help a sinner be strong

Little altar boy, I wonder could you pray for me?
Could you tell our Lord I'm gonna change my way today?
What must I do to be holy like you?
Little altar boy, oh, let me hear you pray
Little altar boy please let me hear you pray!

The Carpenters

What a lovely montage...


Sweet song, but the title of this post actually refers to my youngest son, Gareth, who served the Traditional Latin Mass for the first time yesterday. Wearing a cassock two sizes too big, cinched at the waist and cleverly covered by his surplice, Gareth took his seat "in choir" with the torch-bearers. The pride of seeing this beautiful young boy in cassock and surplice, is indescribable. Pure joy radiated from his face...to his mother: he seemed such a very small boy; a small boy embarking upon a great adventure with a host of young men so much larger and certainly more experienced, than he. "Love covers a multitude of sins" as our dear Lord tells us...Gareth will certainly make up for any deficiencies, by the great love he has for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. A love fervently shared by his three older brothers.

Four sons in the service of our Lord. May God be praised!

Two gorgeous songs in one day that I had not heard before...you never dissapoint!

My husband is using the book Learning To Serve with our sons to teach them to serve the Mass. Do you have any recommendations of training sources. I can't wait to see them assisting the Mass of Ages!

Hi!

Have you looked at Marie Picard's Study Guide? It is an excellent resource, complete with worksheets.

That is one of my favorite Carpenters songs!

Esther said...

This song was new to me too! Were the Carpenters Catholic? Congratulations to your dear son!

Kimberly Wasson said...

Thank you, Esther!

I believe the Carpenters were Methodist.

I served with you son last Sunday. I have to say that he did an excellent job. You should be very proud and so should he!
