I sometimes tell stories that I write for homilies at the children's mass. Fiction and fairy tales are risky business from the pulpit when trying to reach out to children. After the mass, as they all filed by to go back to school, the children said nothing one way of the other about the story I told them. I had written it myself. I had felt quite creative. I thought it had a good message. Maybe not. Children are easily bored. Could I be a boring priest? The "R" word came into my mind. Retire? Well, maybe from preaching my stories to children. God only knows.
