Ten Little Catholics

by Fr Duncan McVicar on 25/03/2013 -

Ten Little Catholics came to church all the time; One fell out with the priest, then there were nine.

Nine Little Catholics stayed up late; One overslept on Sunday, then there were eight.

Eight Little Catholics on their way to Heaven; One took the low road, then there were seven.

Seven Little Catholics, chirping like chicks; One didn’t like the singing, then there were six.

Six Little Catholics seemed very much alive; One took a holiday, then there were five.

Five Little Catholics pulling for Heaven’s shore; One stopped to take a rest, then there were four.

Four Little Catholics each as busy as a bee; One had his feelings hurt, then there were three.

Three little Catholics knew what to do, One joined the sports fans, then there were two.

Two Little Catholics each won one more; Now don’t you see, two plus two equals four.

Four Little Catholics worked early and late; Each brought one, now there were eight.

Eight Little Catholics if they double as before; In just seven Sundays, we have 1024!

In this little ditty there is a lesson true; You belong either to the building, or to the wrecking crew!
