First Eucharist / First Reconciliation

Scripture:  “Let the little children come to me.”     Luke 18:16

Eucharist is called by the Church the apex and the summit of our worship. It is in the Eucharist that we are joined person for person, member for member, in a community of faith. The Eucharist as the Church expresses it is the nourishment for that faith.

It is important, therefore, that our children be brought into the “community table” to be fed along with all others, adults included, at the table of the Lord. The best preparation a child can have and probably the easiest is the faithful example of their parents. In sharing faith, sharing a parent’s example across the household table, a child already begins to pick up the basic meaning of community, family, love, reconciliation, hope, trust, and of course, nourishment, physically and spiritually, through the hands and the lives of those around them. We are reminded about the importance of our children at the table of life when Jesus says to the apostles: “Let the little children come to me, such is the kingdom of God.” And again: “Unless you become like a little child, you cannot enter God’s kingdom.”
