I was an altar boy
for 11 years. Think you had it hard? We had to do the same things
, plus answer the priest in Latin
. To this day, anytime I hear Introibo ad altare Dei
I automatically answer: Ad Deum qui laitificat jueventutem meam
, and can still recite the Confiteor
and the Dies Irae
, all 20-odd verses.
Why, when I was a boy....
