"This is the wonderful truth, my dear friends: the Word, which became flesh two thousand years ago, is present today in the Eucharist."
- Pope John Paul II
Isn't this a beautiful site? Another precious soul joining at the table of our Lord. It was a wonderful day for No. 1 Son. He was very excited and serious. I have never seen him so serious. We were blessed to be able to sit on the front pew. I got to see each and every First Communicant receive; I cried the whole time. That night Daddy-O and I were talking about the day. He said he was crying too. He was telling me that after the First Communicants had all received he realized it was our turn. He said he said to himself, "Pull it together! Pull it together! It's time to go up!" It was probably for the best that his parents were sitting between us. If we had been next to each other we probably would have been hysterical. When it comes to sacraments we are both very emotional.
Congratulations No. 1 Son! We are so excited for you. I love watching you receive each Sunday.
