I wasn't sure where to post this, so I will put here. I am outraged, and I need advice and quick.
The nun at my children's school has told the boys that tomorrow she will be bringing in some unblessed hosts for the children to eat!
I am appalled! She has done some quirky things this year, but this by far beats it all. I couldn't even think straight for a few minutes. What makes me really mad, is that it does not honor and reverence our Lord when he is present. And to make matters worse, my boys are taking First Communion at a traditional Catholic church in May (hopefully) and I don't want them to have had anything to do with the host until that day. It takes away the awesome privilege and honor of that day to eat it ahead of time. Am I right in thinking this? Or am I being too picky?
I teach at this school, so I am thinking I will have the boys come to me. That is my lunch time, and we can sit in my room during that class. They might be upset at first, but I will simply explain why they cannot possibly participate in this activity. They knew there might be a glitch when they asked me as the supper table if it would be alright. (I personally think that in their child's mind they knew it wasn't a good idea.)
Please, give me your suggestions what to say to this nun and how you would handle this. DON'T tell me to pull my kids out - the door won't be able to hit our backsides on May 26 we'll be running so fast through it! The decision to not return next year has already been made.
