A great vocations posted from the Diocese of Raleigh (click for more detail):

Who else played at saying Mass when they were a kid?

(thanks for Fr Z. for this)

I once pretended to be a bishop giving Confirmation in a play. I actually felt comfortable wearing the white garb although I made and wore the mitre wrong!

Wearing the white garb brought me a different kind of peace. I'm looking forward to feeling that peace again. Let's continue praying for each other.

Guilty to the second degree. ;)

Didn't really play Mass but did practice the Consecration and the Per Ipsum doxology.

i also remember attaching a piece of rectangular white paper cut out to a black shirt in imitation of the tab collar.

*smiles* There seems to be a common thread here...

Of course, you know it's bad when you dream it too! ;-p

I am guilty of pretending to say Mass once at home. I used a table for an altar, cut "hosts" with a round cookie cutter out of loaves of bread, and used a chalice-shaped cup with grape juice in it for the chalice.

I never played Mass. Perhaps because I was Protestant. :) I was amused to learn from cradle Catholics how common this pasttime is for children! Shows you that Mass has something in it that captures even a child's imagination.

When were kids, I used to take the role of a priest distributing either leaves or some crisps as communion to my young sisters, that is how my vocation started, and now I am 11 years as a priest. God be blessed for ever.
