DO WITH IT AS YOU WILL

Rojo likes to go to Saturday night Mass with STM. One reason he likes it is the cantor, the woman that leads the singing, and does so with a flair. She raises her arms indicating it's time for the congregation to join in, and she holds them up there fairly dramatically, at least to Rojo's way of thinking.

Without fail he comes home and "is" the cantor. He'll do a few "alleuluias" an "amen" or two, but mostly he just sings whatever it is he wants to say.

Over and over again.

But last night, apropos of nothing, threw his hands up in the air and started singing, "Faith of the wisdom, faaaaaaaith of the wisdom, faith of the wisdom..."

I'm sure there's a message in there somewhere.

I want to do that with all my words today. Hands raised,

"Go get on the potty!"

"Get on the potty!"

"Get on the POTT-eee."

When I was growing up we had a male cantor who was so theatrical in how he led the choir. At our church (Byzantine Catholic), we would sing the creed, and he would start if off with a very loud, echoey, at-the-top-of-his-lungs, "IIIII Beeelieeeve!" To this day, my brother and I will call each other up and do that and laugh for a full five minutes.
