My Son Isaiah, 5-Year-Old Priest (Video)
Many of you have seen the YouTube video of our son, Isaiah, celebrating Mass when he was three years old. It’s been watched over 80,000 times around the world, and I still receive emails from people telling me how much it moved them. (My wife and I joke that despite me being so involved with new media—and even writing a book on the topic—nothing I’ve produced has garnered the acclaim of our three-year-old son’s video. He’s the most viral Vogt.)
Two years later, Isaiah has grown into a gifted five-year-old, full of faith and devotion. He still loves the Mass, which he attends every morning, and he still breaks out his Mass kit every now and then. A few weeks ago he asked to play with it and we decided to capture the whole thing on video so that we could create a nice film. Watch it above, and be sure to stick around to the end to catch his outtakes!
