A talk given to parents of first communicants at Our Lady of the Assumption and the English Martyrs, Cambridge by Sr. Tamsin Mary Geach
In the next few weeks your children will reach the point of making their first Holy Communion. This era of fortnightly early rising will be over! Praise the Lord!
So well done. You have faithfully brought your children to this point. It’s my job today to remind you why we go through all this – parents, catechists and children. What is the motivation that makes this worth-while?
Basically, eternal life.
