Interview with a Catholic Toddler

October 26, 2015

 “Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”

– Matthew 19:14

 The following is an unscripted interview with a three-year-old about her Catholic faith.

Interviewer: Thank you for joining me, today. Are you excited for your interview?

Toddler: YES! I love talking to you!

I: Wonderful, let’s begin. Please, tell me how you feel about Jesus.

T: Well, he’s great. He knows God & Mary. I bet he’s ticklish like me. I want to give him flowers. I fink he likes flowers.

I: Fascinating. How can we love people like Jesus?

T: The number 6.

I: ….the number 6?

T: Yes, the number 5 and 6 (Shows me 6 fingers).

I: How can we love people like Jesus?

T: We jus’ try again.

I: Wise beyond your years. Yes. How do you feel about church?

T: Good. It’s like a square and a triangle. It looks like a castle. I like to go.

I: What do you think of the priest, the guy at the front?

T: He says Mass for God. He wears a pretty dress like this (motions a long dress). It’s green. He looks like a giant pickle (Giggles).

I: Indeed. Good observations. Do you have a favorite saint?

T: I like Mary mother of God. And…St Board (pretends to ride skateboard).

I: St Board? What is St. Board the patron saint of?

T: Skateboards!

I: Fascinating. He must be busy. So you like Mary. What do you think about her?

T: I fink she’s full a gwace, and I fink she would like to be in the jungle. I don’t fink she likes flowers, but she’s very pretty. She has a byoo-full dress.

I: Very deep. What do you think about kneeling during the Mass?

T: I think we should change it to kneeling in a garden. I like gardens (gestures like she’s holding a flower).

I: That would be nice! You like the ‘sign of peace’ a lot. Is that your favorite part?

T: Can we add water to that garden? I think the garden should have water!

I: Sure, why not? So, you don’t like the ‘sign of peace?’

T: Oh, I LOVE that! I like it when my mommy and daddy hug me, and, then, I talk to other peoples. We dress very pretty.

I: This has been very fun, but I think we should wrap this up for today. Would you like to add anything?

T: I fink….I fink we need to count all deez everybodies.

I: Very wise. We need to count everyone.
