This week we are hearing the Gospel of John's "Bread of Life" discourse (chapter 6). This weekend, my second-grade niece, Claudia, will be receiving the Bread of Life in her First Communion. I am praying so much for her this week! Praying that her First Communion really will be the beginning of a new level of relationship with Jesus. Praying for all those children who will be reaching this pinnacle of Christian Initiation--especially kids who didn't get adequate preparation. May the grace of the sacrament enter so deeply that it will grow like the seed in the Gospel! One day it will bear God's fruit, even if for a while it may not seem to. That is my prayer.
