Anne Marie's First Holy Communion
My niece, Anne Marie, is making her First Holy Communion tomorrow. She looks so very much like this photo (monastic hood tip to The Crescat)... she's a real fire-cracker...one that is destined to be a CEO of some corporation or a Mother Superior (the last option I am praying for!)
My sister, Julie, and her husband, Dan, are great parents...their four children (three boys and Anne Marie) are such great kids. (I'm prejudiced here...I'm their uncle, after all!).
I pray for these young people, all of them, that they may respond to God's call and be what He wants them to be, what He has destined them to be from all eternity.
I love them all so very much! God is so good! Never, in my wildest imagination, when I became a Catholic some thirty years ago, did I imagine seeing my nephews and niece receiving Jesus in Holy Communion...in following Him in the Holy Catholic Faith.
