When I was five or six and going to Catholic school, I believed that Communion was like the story of the fishes and the loaves. The priest would reach into a small box behind the alter and, miraculously, there would be enough Communion wafers for everyone on a tray.

In my religion there is a mission training center and they called it the MTC. When I was a little girl whenever a missionary went to the MTC I thought they were going to the empty sea. I couldn't quite understand why they had to go to the empty sea to get training for their mission.

When I first started school, one of my friends told me her family were Taoists. I asked her what that was and she said they believed that the Tao was all around us, all over us, and all inside us. For a little while after that, I used to take long baths to try to wash all the Tao off of me.

I used to believe that my cats were catholic. You know how catholic people do the sign of the cross thing, where they like touch their forehead, and their heart, and their shoulders (or however they do that). Well my cats lick their paws, and touch over their heads with it. When they licked their paws I thought they were trying to touch their hearts, and then their forehead,(but they can't touch their shoulders with their paws), so they did a partial cross. Why else do they call it CAThoLIC(K).

When my friend was 6 she thought 'eating the scroll' actually meant to eat your bible literally. She then proceeded to do so, during the church service.

When I was little, my dad told me that God was in church with us. Our church guitar player was a guy with a grey beard, so I thought he was God.

When I first went to Sunday School I was frightened and cried. There were some glass globes full of water and bubbles sometimes could be seen. They were only drinking water dispensors, but I thought it was Holy Water and the bubbles were the Holy Ghost.

In catechism class, we learned that God is a Supreme Being. Except for little Ann, who thought God was a string bean.

In church we'd say the Nicene Creed, and whenever we'd say 'On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the scriptures' I thought the words were 'in the filming of the scriptures.' I imagined the disciples watching a movie - a film - of Jesus coming back to life, with one of them in the back of the room running the projector.

I went to Catholic School as a child. I also knew that other kids in my neighborhood went to Public School. So, in my eyes there were 2 religions, Catholic and Public.

When I was young I went to a Catholic school and the only other type of school I knew of was a public school. One day I asked my cousin, "Are you Catholic?" When she answered "no" I said, "Well then you must be public."

When I was a little girl, i recall going to my Catholic church. If, you're not familiar with it, before given communion we would shake hands with the people around us and say "Peace be with you". I always thought they were saying "Peace baby Jew" which also made sense since Jesus is Jewish.

When I was 6 my best friends mother said: "Sarah I know your Mom is Catholic but what religion is your Dad"? I replied: "Well my Dad is public"! I thought that if you went to a public school it meant you were public.

the first time i saw a confession box, i clocked that it was about the size of a person (even though you couldn't see in), was in the dark, kinda spooky corners of the church and had a person's name over the door, and figured that that must be where they kept the dead bodies while they were waiting for the funeral! i used to sprint past them, cos i was petrafied that one was going to fall out on me.
