Fr. Richard Carton, associate pastor of St. Catherine of Siena Church, Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, was speaking to a group of second graders about the resurrection when one student asked, "What did Jesus say right after He came out of the grave?"
It was a question of great theological importance, but Fr. Carton had to explain, in words suitable to his young audience, that the Gospels do not tell us just what He said. The hand of one little girl shot up. "I know what He said Father," she insisted. "And what was that?" asked Fr. Carton. "Tah-dah!" the girl exclaimed.
