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

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.
