RECEIVING FIRST COMMUNION TODAY
Catholics today are receiving the benefit of the pastoral decisions the Popes made in the 20th century giving them the opportunity to receive Holy Communion often. First Communion programs flourish in parishes and First Communion is a special occasion celebrated by families all over the world. It is so important that First Communion not simply be seen by parents as a social event. Their child will be receiving the Body and Blood of the risen Jesus Christ in Holy Communion for the first time. Their son or daughter is also entering into a deeper relationship with them as their brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ.
The Church teaches that the Eucharist is the Source and Summit of Christian life. It is our prayer of thanksgiving and gratitude to God for sending his Son to save the human family from sin. For the person receiving their First Communion, it begins a process of deepening their relationship with Christ and others. What can families do to create an environment to help the child to continue the journey?
What do families that value the Eucharist look like?
