A good fatherhood moment

Litte Macrina (not her real name) has been taught from the beginning that one is to kiss and venerate icons. She does this in church whenever we go, giving Jesus and Mary a kiss. We are in the habit of venerating Our Lady of Vladimir before bedtime. She also does this at home, picking icons off the tables and walking around kissing them. Unfortunately, she hasn't learned the difference between a holy icon and a photograph, and hence also venerates pictures of Mrs. Athanasius and me.

Someday she'll learn. I think she's doing very well for 16 months.
