THIS IS A NEW BUT "HURT" BOOK. The corners have some minimal dents.
This book is a completely unique presentation of the Catholic faith for children preparing for First Holy Communion. It is a rare combination of gifted writing, wonderful vibrant illustration, and exquisite design. Through stories from the Bible, bits of the Church's history, and descriptions of the sacraments, this book leads young people and their parents or grandparents into the mystery of the Eucharist. The heart of the Church and her sacraments is presented as the life of Jesus himself.
First published in Ireland under the guidance of renowned theologian Father Vincent Twomey, SVD. A glorious volume with gorgeous full color illustrations on every page. Provides thorough sacramental preparation, and includes parent pages with important in-depth explanations. Ideal gift for children!

Praise for My First Holy Communion:
"I have no hesitation in recommending this delightful -- and much needed -- introduction to the faith for children preparing for First Confession and First Holy Communion."
- Father D. Vincent Twomey, SVD
