I’d like to begin by wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers. This is a special day when we honor our mothers and show our appreciation for all that they do for us.
This Saturday evening at our 5 p.m. Mass and Sunday at our 9:15 a.m. Mass, eighteen children from our parish are receiving their First Communion. It is a very special day for them as they receive Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time.
We are privileged to watch these children receive their First Communion. It is an exciting time to see them all dressed in their 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. 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,
