First Holy Communion - Quotes & Prayer

First Holy Communion season is upon us!

What a milestone of JOY!

As I anticipate this important Sacrament for my god-daughter this Sunday in Virginia, I am reminded of my daughter's day a few years earlier....



This IS the Body, Blood, Soul & Divinity of Our Lord, 
Jesus Christ.




Come to Jesus...and LIVE. (First Holy Communion music video)




Watching an excited and pure soul come to their Eucharistic Lord always brings me to tears.




And I pray for my God-Daughter and all the children in this season and seasons to come...you are the future of the Church. KNOW and LOVE the BLESSED SACRAMENT.


Prayer at a Child's First Communion

Lord Jesus Christ, in the Sacrament of the Eucharist You left us the outstanding manifestation of your limitless love for us.
Thank You for giving our child the opportunity to experience this love in receiving the Sacrament for the first time.
May your Eucharist presence keep him/her ever free from sin, fortified in faith,
pervaded by love for God and neighbor, and fruitful in virtue, 
that he/she may continue to receive You throughout life 
and attain final union with You at death. 
Amen.

Beautiful post, pictures and quotes! I also am moved to tears when I watch "an excited and pure soul" (love how you put that) receive the Eucharistic Lord for the first time. I didn't expect that response, but I have had it for my 3 oldest, and I'm sure I'll have it for my 3 youngest!
