First Communion

Rightly is special care taken in the catechesis for the First Communion. This is true for children bur also for adults who are receiving Communion for the first time as the climax of the Sacraments of Initiation or of their being received into full communion with the Catholic Church.

But that “Special Care” must not allow us to forget that First Communion is but the beginning  of a life time need for growth in the attempting to understand an inexhaustible mystery: the mystery of Eucharistic celebration. There are many ways in which this grow can take place: prayer and reflection, reading essays or books form different epochs of the Church’s life or many number of approaches to ongoing catechesis. 1
