Joy to my heart
Avila has learned how to make the Sign of the Cross (well, at least the "Holy Spirit" part). She knows that it comes when we say the word "pray" or when we say "Amen" (which to her is "Maymen") or when she sees a Holy Water font. What always gets me is when she picks up on something we have never taught her. Take today for example. We were at Mass and I took her up to receive Holy Communion. Once I received Christ, she made the Sign of the Cross! I must tell you that, at that moment, my heart couldn't have been more full of joy. I pray for the holiness of Avila everyday and to see it come to fruition makes me happier than anything in the world.
