Very close to the big day!
Daniel is making his first communion on June 17th, we're all looking forward to it!
When I was 9, I also made my first communion, but it was part of the process of attending a catholic school, living in a catholic society and simply going through what was expected. You could argue he's following the process his parents set up for him, and that is true, in part. We live in a non catholic society, 95% of his friends are not catholic, we have given him the option of waiting until next year but he has decided to go on and attend to sunday school and learn the mass. I'm sure there is something about following what his parents do, but I can tell you that 99% of the time he doesn't want to follow what their parents do or ask him to do, so all in all, he has taken a decision, stick to it and we're very proud and happy - Amen!
