My First Communion Bible Features Special Foreword from Fr. Benedict Groeschel
Your child’s First Holy Communion is one of the most solemn and significant days in his or her life. And there is no better way to mark this special occasion than with My First Communion Bible, new from Saint Benedict Press.
This beautiful Bible Story book is specially designed to mark a child’s First Holy Communion. Special features include a Communion Record page and a beautiful two page letter from beloved priest Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R.
Fr. Groeschel writes to children on the great gift of meeting Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, shares his memory of his own First Communion, and encourages children to love Jesus forever and receive Him often.
Today when the priest gives you Holy Communion, it may seem like ordinary bread, but it is not. It is really and truly Jesus, writes Fr. Groeschel. Today Jesus will come into your heart and soul.
Following Fr. Groeschel s letter, 26 Bible stories from the New Testament will help children come to know and love Jesus even more. Each story is beautifully illustrated in a manner that will inspire young readers and bring the Bible stories to life.
Other features of the Bible include: padded hardcover, gold foil stamped cover and gilded page edges.
My First Communion Bible is the perfect gift for First Communicants from parents, godparents, pastors, or any special person in their life, and the perfect way to encourage children’s love for the Lord, present in the Holy Eucharist.
