QIR, -Some of your correspond's' ents evidently don't take seriously Our Lord's "Suffer little
children to come unto me . ." nor His "Unless you become as a little child . . ."
As a convert. I am delighted to find what an "easy family affair church-going is to the Catholic, se far removed from the constrained, dressed-in-one's-best and untouchable atmosphere to which 1 had been used, in which one must never come late for any reason at all (it was better to go hack home). impossible to cough, help one's neighbour with a whisper, or even move.
Surely love is more clearly demonstrated in this family-gathering than in the narrow intolerance of other people's frailties? We were all children once, though to hear some of these comments we could doubt it, ot think the writers were ashamed 01 it. Miss Moffat could easily find that quiet corner in any church, it need not be built on specially for her, it is in our own hearts; and if it is still intolerable that children should be there, why not get up and go to earlier Mass while they are still in bed?
