MJMJ's First Communion
Between traveling and a change of priests at our parish, we have had trouble getting MJMJ's first reconciliation and first communion on the calendar.
"Reconciliation can be done at any time." Our priests and deacons have advised us. It is not a sacrament of record. We had been talking about it and MJ has been studying about it in school. Daniel Oberreutter from the Thirsting presented a 3-night mission at our parish. Reconciliation was available. Charity nudged MJ and he took the bait. First Reconciliation complete!
Soon after, we had our new priest over to bless the house and talked to him about First Communion. "How soon is too soon?" he asked, "next week?"
