Michael Jr. (Age 2) on Transubstantiation, the Hypostatic Union and More

Just in case you can't make it out on the video below, here are the questions and Michael's answers. And yes, I know I repeated one question twice; we got sidetracked by the ABCs (edited out). At the end, you also see Matthew (our one year old) walking around in the background with a birthday hat on, proudly proclaiming the letters of the magnetic alphabet which have been attached to the dish washer ("T!").

The tragedy is: he probably understands them better than the average cradle Catholic, too... :-)

I would like to see how many of these questions students in a Confirmation class could answer. Their teachers might be very surprised and embarrassed.
God Bless,

Amazing! The family is the domestic Church and the parents are the first teachers of the faith. Congratulations you win the "Living the Teachings of Vatican II" award.
