Thank you, dear God, for making today so beautiful. Catherine woke early to get ready for Mass. I helped dress her and the inward beauty of her soul truly shone outwardly. Bernadette showed great excitement for her big sister. She is anxious to receive her First Confession and First Communion.
Catherine did a wonderful job reading from the second letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 13: 11-13).
She looked so happy after receiving our Lord's body for the first time. My heart leapt for joy when I heard her exclaim, "Today is the happiest day of my life." It was one of mine too. I pray that all of my children share the same sentiment on their First Communion Day.
