Overview


Parents are expected to take an active role in preparing their children for First Communion. Often parents are confronted with concepts which seem quite different from their own understanding of Eucharist, their own memories of First Communion day and their own hopes about what this day will mean to their child.

In Your Child's First Communion Carol Luebering attempts to bridge that gap. She draws upon experiences of family life to help parents prepare themselves to welcome a child to the Lord's table. Eucharist, the author says, is deeply bound to a parent's concern: ""Eucharist, believers insist, expresses God's dream for all human children."" Each chapter offers questions for reflection or discussion and passages from the liturgy of the sacrament, Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church for prayerful meditation.
