 Our Description

A birthday dinner was being given for little Imelda Lambertini. She was 5 years old.

Imelda's wealthy father and mother had given her toys, pictures, jewelry, perfumes, and beautiful silks to be made into dresses. It was a wonderful sight, and Imelda was very pleased. But presently she grew thoughtful.


"I was wondering if I could have just one more present, Mother."


"Greedy girl!" laughed her father. "What more do you want than this?"


Imelda looked up. "I'd like to receive Our Lord in Holy Communion," she whispered.


This was one present that Imelda's parents could not give her. Back in the year 1327, Holy Communion was not given until age 14.


It seemed that no one would grant Imelda's great desire. But Imelda knew that Our Lord can do anything. She would beg Him every day to come to her.  Would Our Lord hear Imelda s prayer? What answer would He give? And would He have to perform a miracle in order to answer her?


This book gives the answers and tells the wonderful story of how little Imelda came to be the Patroness of First Communicants.
