First Holy Communion

This morning, twenty or so of our children made their first Holy Communions. I was immensely proud of them; all of them behaved perfectly and reverently, even those who find this difficult for various reasons which are not their fault. Please say a prayer that the devotion with which they made their communions may stay with them, and that their families will continue to encourage the faith which was very evident this morning.

New Irish Latin Mass Blog

http://www.catholicheritage.blogspot.com/

A new blog for an ancient Liturgy. The first few posts are self-explanatory. St. Conleth’s Catholic Heritage Association has been working for the provision of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin since 1995. We’d be very glad if you could (a) post about the new blog and (b) link to it.

In particular, we’d be glad if you could bring to the attention of your readers the news that there will be a Walking Pilgrimage for Vocations on Saturday, 12th July, 2008, commencing at 11 a.m. in St. Brigid’s Church, Milltown, County Kildare, Ireland, with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (Missal of Blessed John XXIII) for which the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin has granted, under the usual conditions, the Plenary Indulgence for the Pauline Holy Year.

God bless you!

First Holy Communion is indeed a very special moment. God bless the First Communicants and keep them faithful always.
