Priest reaches out to bless little girl and she adorably slips him a high-five
This is adorable. I love how bold she is and how the priest is trying to remain so serious.

Let’s face it. Sometimes church can feel like a confusing place to be. When you’re a kid, all the tradition that goes into a Sunday morning can be a bit overwhelming.

Is it time to stand? Time to sit? Oh, it’s time to stand again, right?

It can be easy to get embarrassed or feel like you don’t know what you’re doing.

Might as well toss up a high five

If there ever were a creature on the planet designed to thrive in embarrassing moments, it would be kids.

Where most adults would get all bumbly and shy, kids just take the moment and make it their own.

Church is no exception.

Kids are, undoubtedly, “the great humblers” of our society.

And they strike at a moment’s notice.

It seems like they are on a mission to remind you that all the things you value are social constructs that THEY don’t feel like abiding by quite yet.

“Are you pregnant?”

The pinnacle of cultural apathy is the famous question kids ask strangers. “Are you pregnant?” The best part is that kids seem to know when someone isn’t pregnant but still ask them.

They also always make sure that you, the parent or guardian, are around to scramble to defend them with words like “sorry” and “I apologize” and “he’s only three.”

When you put one of these sticky, mini-humans in their Sunday best and send them to a room crowded with people trying to look their best, hilarious things happen.

Enter this little princess

In one recent video, we see a funny situation where a kid tries their best to follow the rules but is tricked into doing the wrong thing.

I mean, you can hardly blame the girl once you see it for yourself.

She was just going with the flow.

A mom and her daughter are dressed to the nines and walking up towards a waiting priest. To complete their outfits, they have color-matching masks.

As far as Sunday clothes go, they are suited for an Easter service. The mother seems to be taking the girl up to the priest to receive a blessing.

Sometimes, blessings are a two-way street.

A standard church blessing usually consists of a few words (sometimes in Latin), a few hand motions, and an outstretched arm. The priest completes all of these without an issue…

But when the priest reaches out his arm to complete the blessing, the little girl makes her move.

And a glorious move it was.

Adults say all the same things to kids when they first meet them. Among things said by dads and grandpas alike is the phrase “Hey there! Gimme a high-five”.

By the time you are hitting double digits, you are basically conditioned to preemptively slap any incoming hands with gusto.

When the priest reached out his hand to bless the girl, she decided that the blessing required a more direct kind of connection.

With a gentle and elegant high-five, the girl delivers on her promise to never be “too slow” when the high five is down low.

Amid laughs from the crowd and a smile from the priest, all that’s left is for the priest to deliver his side of the bargain.

Now she’s ready to be blessed.

The priest is finally able to bless her with a gentle hand on her head.

While I am no priest, I think that this little girl should receive double-blessing, because she probably made God laugh with this ceremony.
