Remind me before I forget


Remind me before I forget 

From Richard Rohr

“I remember hearing a story, reportedly true, about a young couple putting their newborn in the nursery for the night. Their four-year-old son said to them, “I want to talk to the baby!” They said, “Yes, you can talk to him from now on.” But he pressed further, saying, “I want to talk to him now and by myself.” Surprised and curious, they let the young boy into the nursery and cupped their ears to the door, wondering what he might be saying.

This is what they reportedly heard their boy say to his baby brother: “Quick, tell me where you came from. Quick, tell me who made you. I’m beginning to forget!””
