Today, Mr. Thomas received Holy Communion for the very first time! I think his shy little self was a little nervous, but he’s happy, of course. Father Christian is a visiting priest just for today. He’s a Benedictine monk out of St. Meinrad’s Archabbey, and so he doesn’t do a whole lot of First Communions. In fact, he’s only done three others, so he was just as honored to get to be a part of this day as we were. We are now baking cakes, because we do everything at the last minute! Fortunately, we aren’t having company, so no one else will ever know.
