A few months ago, my husband finished reading Tolkien’s The Hobbit to our boys. They loved, loved, loved it! Highly recommended read aloud!
Then, at a mass, we heard the Gospel of the Prodigal Son, upon whose return the father placed a ring on his finger. Our 4 year old became wide eyed and in the fake whisper that is louder than his normal voice gasped, “Did he disappear?”
