The second graders at our parish were supposed to receive the Lord in Holy Communion for the first time back in April. But due to the pandemic it was delayed. Their day finally came yesterday. They had to split it into two different masses to allow for social distancing. And only parents and siblings could accompany them. But even though it was different, it was still beautiful. My prayer for them is that they always feel this close to Jesus and that they spread His love all over the world during their lives.
So in their honor, here is my first communion picture from 1975. I am in the first row, all the way on the left.
