Today at the 11:30 mass, twelve children from our parish are receiving their First Communion. It is very special for them to receive Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time.
We are privileged to watch these children receive Jesus for the first time. It is exciting to see them all dressed up in the first communion outfits. Witnessing them reminds us of our own First Communion and how blessed we are to meet Jesus in the Eucharist.
We should be as excited to be nourished by Christ as the boys and girls who receive him for the first time. As we witness the children receive their First Communion, let's keep in mind this gift that Jesus has given to us. As we faithfully receive the Eucharist every Sunday, we prepare ourselves to one day receive the gift of eternal life.
Sincerely in Christ,
