The Belch heard round the Nave
...offered by Dn. James Ferrenberg, a sinner at 10:23 AM [+]
Nicholas, my just turned 3 year old son, took communion with his Godfather last sunday as is our custom. As the Litrugy was coming to a close I looked over and noticed that Nicho was reaching out to me and so I went to relieve Kit of his little boy burden. Arriving back in my preferred standing spot with the boy wrapped tightly around my neck (head on my shoulder) he promptly let loose of what seemed to me to be an earth-shattering burp. I couldn't help but laugh.
I hear that in some cultures that belching after a meal is considered a complement to the Chef.
Well, in that case Nicho, Amen.
