Seeing the joy on so many young faces this weekend at first communion was a great experience. This is actually one of the best parts of parenthood. Helping your child experience these good steps towards adulthood should fill you with joy as well. Helping our children to know and love the Lord is a challenge, and of the greatest importance to parents for our own eternal salvation. So let us pray we do our evangelization joyfully, and the children respond in kind as they continue their rites of initiation!
