Future Priests? Around the World, Children Playing “Mass”

Perhaps you saw this:

The YouTube video of Catholic author Brandon Vogt’s three-year-old son Isaiah “celebrating Mass” with his new mass kit was a hit on YouTube in 2012.

Young Isaiah Vogt was demonstrating what he’d learned in church, watching his pastor celebrate the Latin Rite Mass.

Meanwhile, across the world, children are more familiar with the Sacred Mysteries, the Eastern Rite liturgy.

I recently ran across this video from Russia, where children are playing “priest” and learning about the sacred mysteries.  (Note the frequent use of “incense” in the Eastern version.)  I don’t know whether this is an Orthodox liturgy or perhaps a Byzantine Rite–but it’s great to see children at such a young age thinking about their faith.
