Default 3 year old child officiates Mass like an expert priest

This is amazing, this little child knows almost all the words of the liturgy and many of the songs, and he performs them very well, even pronouncing the words very well.

He may be playing and it's amusing to see him play but at the same time you see him that he is serious about it - he is not jocking around or 'kidding' around - , to me he seems that he is taking his performance seriously.

According to news reports, he doesn't even know how to read and write yet and the priestly attire he now uses were confectioned by nuns and given to him as Christmas gifts.

His name is Samuel Jaramillo, a Colombian little cherub from Medellin, and remember the name 'Samuel' is has a significance. Samuel had an early calling and was a great prophet of God.

Check out the video even if you don't know Spanish, just to see him is amazing:

Report in English:
Quote:
Other kids his age may dream of becoming policemen, firefighters or doctors but Samuel assured RCN reporters that what he truly wants to be when he grows up is a priest. In fact, last Christmas instead of asking for toys the boy’s grandmother said all he put on his wish list was clergy robes and the supplies needed to perform the holy sacraments.
