Years ago, while visiting the Cross In The Woods Shrine, Indian River, Michigan, we walked the paths of the outdoor Stations of the Cross and then headed toward the giant cross. On the way, we passed by the statue of St Francis of Assisi. It was there that our granddaughter paused awhile. As she was the last to return to the group, her mother noticed she had a stone in her hand. And, as it seems inappropriate to pick up stones at a national shrine, her mother said, "Oh, sweetie, please put that stone back. You shouldn't pick up stones here."
To which our 3 year old granddaughter, pointing back toward the statue of St Francis, said, "But, He told me I could have it".
There was nothing more that could be said.
