Putting The “Christ” Back In Christmas: A Special First Communion on Christmas Day

Posted on

First Communion holds a profound significance in the lives of religious families. It's a cherished tradition where a child accepts the Christian rite of Holy Communion in the Catholic Church. However, amid the holiday rush, it's essential to reflect on the deeper meaning of this tradition and find ways to put the "Christ" back in Christmas.

Rediscovering the True Meaning of Christmas

For many Americans, Christmas has evolved into a materialistic affair, overshadowing its spiritual significance. It's crucial to revisit the full gospel story, from the moment of creation to Christ's resurrection. This story serves as a reminder to confess our sins, seek repentance, and experience spiritual healing. Christmas Day, the celebration of Christ's birth, offers a unique opportunity for Communion. It's a day that signifies the birth of Christ, enabling us to be born anew. This Christmas, consider letting your child experience the joy of Christ by celebrating their first communion on this significant day.
