How moving it is to welcome your child to the Eucharistic table, to share in Jesus’s blessed meal together! And how wonderful to see these children, so serious, so excited, and so devoted, sharing this momentous occasion! My wife pointed out that she is still close with most of the friends she had her first communion with, and so I hope it will be for our child!
One more thing. Out of the nine who had their first communion this year, four are cousins! To think that this family (pictured) is the offspring of two people, my daughter’s great-grandparents, is truly a wonder! Thank you also to Jenny Rim, our child’s godmother, for coming all the way out to our parish to celebrate with us on this special day.
