I have been thinking about my son’s big day, his First Eucharist. I’ve been asking myself: How can I make the day of his First Communion special? How can I extend his sense of sacramental awe and wonder beyond that first special moment, his First Holy Communion?
The pressure to make this day “perfect” can be enormous, especially as parents begin to compare stories and plans. I decided to concentrate less on the clothes, photos, party, gifts, guest list, etc., and more on helping my child “meet” Jesus, so that he would better understand the gift and grace he was about to receive.
Here are three ideas I tried.
I now feel less pressure to make this day “perfect”. I am confident it will be because of our time spent together meeting Jesus along the way.
