On May 6th, 2007 at the noon Mass in Holy Ghost Catholic Church with about fifteen or twenty other boys and girst all in brand new clothes I went up to receive my first Holy Communion. I was nervous but I was happy and excited that I could finally receive Jesus in Holy Communion.
After Mass during the reception lunch I asked Mommy if she thought the dresses were pretty. Mommy said that the other dresses were pretty but that she thought my dress was the prettiest. I knew that Mommy was right and anyway I agreed. My dress was homemade by my Grandma and Mommy made my veil. My shoes were wute and I had to wear one of Mommy's slips. I got several presents but my favorite was a St. Lucy pink necklace and a St. Lucy book.
That day was very beautiful and joyful and I still experience that joy every Sunday when I recive Holy Communion.
