In many Churches throughout the United States this is the weekend that our 2nd graders will have the opportunity to receive God’s Greatest Gift to us – The Gift of the Eucharist for the first time. With this in mind I ask that we hold these students up in prayer asking the Lord to help them to always cherish the blessing of being able to have the Lord that close to them. May our prayers help them and us to also realize that the wonderful Gift that they are being able to receive this weekend is the same wonderful Gift that is being offered to them every day. It isn’t just a Gift once but always. May receiving the Gift be something that we always hold dear to our hearts as the Lord holds us close to His heart.
God’s continued peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
