Priest Hurts Children During Mass

This comes from This is
True

CHARISMATIC, STIGMATIC – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? Parents are upset with a
priest at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Corn Hill, Texas, after he
called about 15 children up to the altar during mass. The lesson: how
Jesus suffered during crucifixion. His method: pricking the children’s
hands with a pin. “What I was trying to teach them is that suffering is a
part of life,” said Fr. Arthur Michalka, 78. One parent says the wounds,
made with an unsterilized pin, drew blood from her child, but the priest
says that’s not true. “I did not intend it to go very deep,” he said. “I
didn’t think it was that big a deal.” (Austin American- Statesman) .Watch
out for next week’s participatory lesson, “Casting the first
stone.”
