I'm sitting here with my laptop blogging, when one of my teens asks me, "Is 12 a sacred number?"
"Maybe so," I reply. "There were 12 tribes of Israel and 12 apostles."
"And 12 stars on the Miraculous Medal," he says.
Where does he get this from?
"Seven is the number of completion," I tell him, remembering back to my Bible study on Revelations.
"Oh like 7 days of the week?" he asks.
"Yeah, and there are 7 sacraments, 7 capital sins, etc," I say.
"And there are 7 Archangels, Mom," he says. "Gabriel, Michael, Rafael.... Gabriel is for Sunday, [one of the others] is for Monday and the other is for Tuesday." (only he KNEW which angel went with which day).
How does he know this?? He looked it up on Wikipedia???
