A reminder that partaking in the Blessed Sacrament is a true privilege.

Many children will be excited about celebrating their First Holy Communion. After a lot of time and devotion in preparing for this most special occasion, they’ll be ready to receive Christ with open hearts. As parents, it’s a beautiful moment to witness in your children’s lives.

However, as you see your children receive the Blessed Sacrament for the first time, it is the perfect opportunity to consider how important Holy Communion is to you. After all, it would be easy to take for granted a sacrament you’ve been so used to receiving for years.

So to give you a little reminder of what a privilege it is to receive Holy Communion, and join your children in their joy, ponder these meaningful quotes from saints and popes throughout the centuries.
