The white dress, white patent leather shoes…. a prayer book, a new watch from my godparents, a crisp $20 bill. But while I understood that this was Jesus I was receiving for the first time, I'm not sure how much I understood what difference He would make in my life. So if I were shopping for a Communion gift for a young boy or girl today, I would jump at the chance to give him or her one of the fine new children's books introduced by Ignatius Press. Just in case you have ...http://seasonsofgrace.net/for-first-communion-day-and-beyond-gifts-of-beauty-and-grace/

Does anyone know if he speaks of the four cups in another document or even in a homily? I will conclude with Benedict's words from the beginning of Chapter Six: "Jesus' final meal – whether or not it was a Passover meal – was first and foremost an act of worship. At its heart was the prayer of praise and thanksgiving, and at the end it led back into prayer." It was an act of worship! This however is a topic for ...http://tomperna.org/2016/03/25/was-jesus-last-supper-actually-a-passover-meal-or-was-it-something-completely-new/

Unfortunately, due to changes in work schedules, my husband and I allowed something not-so-great to happen: new work hours did not match well with Adoration chapel hours in the next town over, so, as much as I hate to admit it, we stopped prioritizing getting ourselves to adoration regularly.

Presentation or Purification? CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - February 1, 2016 2nd February sees the celebration of the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord (Ordinary Form) and the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Extraordinary Form). The name of Candlemass also applies, because of the blessing and procession of candles associated with the celebration of this feast. So far as I can tell, the Liturgical texts, at least for the celebration of Mass and the procession of candles, are similar in both the Extraordinary and Ordinary Forms.
