Religious Ponderings by Maggie

My lovely five-year-old has been contemplating the mysteries of her religion lately.  Here are her latest spiritual questions and comments. 

"Mom, Lent can't be a season. There are only four seasons; winter, spring, summer and fall. So, Lent must be a guy. Who is Saint Lent?"

"Do we die on the cross too or does just Jesus?"

"Jesus is also Jesus' father.  But how can that be? Woah! (giggles)  I've never heard of anyone who could be their own father before."

Now how is it that my five-year-old can't stop throwing tantrums but CAN sit and contemplate the incarnation and the trinity?
