Today was the day. Issa mades her First Holy Communion. Preparations for this sacrament began in January. Once a month we met with other families with children preparing for the same. We studied at home to ensure Issa understood the significance of this very important step in her journey of faith in Christ.
What a marvelous invitation: to share in the gift Jesus gave to us centuries ago. Issa is now invited to share receiving the Body and Blood of Christ each time she celebrates Mass at church.
