A First Holy Communion

Quinquagesima Sunday ~ February 22, 2009
(February 22 is also the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, which I thought was special since Father recently came back from giving tours in Rome of St. Peter's tomb!)

"My First Holy Communion!"

Our Family and our First Communicant with Father
(Right before Mass we found out that this was Father's First time to give someone their First Holy Communion! Isn't that neat?!)

"Adoremus in Æternum Sanctissimum Sacramentum."
(Let us for ever adore the Most Holy Sacrament.)

"The body of our Lord, Jesus Christ, preserve my soul unto life everlasting! I possess Him Who gives Eternal life. With firm and confident Faith, I believe, O Jesus, that Thou hast words of eternal life. Thy Flesh is meat indeed. I have received Thy sacred Body. Thou art truly present in my soul, my Lord and my God; Thou art most intimately united in me. Oh, how can I sufficiently adore Thee! Thou art my God -- I, thy unworthy creature; Thou, my Father and Savior, hast taken pity on me: Thou lovest me, it is Thy delight to be with me. How can I, my Jesus, thank Thee for this grace! Magnify the Lord, my soul, for He hath done wonderful things to thee! Sweet merciful Jesus, vouchsafe to look kindly upon my poor and pitiful gratitude." ~ Excerpt from First Communion Thanksgiving Prayer
in Jesus Make Me Worthy

    It was hard not to be a tiny bit disappointed that Rascal wasn't able to receive in the Traditional Rite in a beautiful church like Captain was, but the important thing is that he WAS able to receive these Sacraments, and for that we are so very thankful!
