Written for parents of children approaching their First Holy Communion, The Eucharist: Encountering Jesus invites participants to reignite their own spirituality, turning an already joyous event into an opportunity for the entire family to grow in love and service to Christ.
Through scripture, reflections, opportunities to share, and calls to action, the six sessions in this book encourage parents to recall the role of the Eucharist in their lives and connect more deeply with their children about their faith, their actions, and the world around them.
By turns humorous and touching, the authors’ personal stories bring home Pope Francis’ message:
“Love is something we learn; love is something we live; love grows as it is ‘forged’ by the concrete situations which each particular family experiences. Love is born and constantly develops amid lights and shadows.”
This faith-sharing resource is designed for use in parishes, small Christian communities, or by individual families.
