Tomorrow Erika receives her First Holy Communion!
We found this wonderful Novena Booklet that is just so beautiful. Erika has been praying these prayers in preparation for tomorrow. Here is the one from today~
Oh Jesus, soon I will receive You in Holy Communion. I have waited for this day for a long time. I am so excited to receive the Body and Blood of my dear Redeemer. I have tried to prepare for this day by offering little sacrifices to You to prepare my soul for Your coming. I will ask my dear Mother Mary to come into my soul so that she can receive You with the perfect love which can only make You more pleased to be in my soul. I will never forget this day which brings me so much happiness. I bring to You today, a bouquet of flowers to present to Mary, as a symbol of my love for You. I thank my Lady for bringing You, Jesus, to me. Never let me be parted from You. May I never receive You unworthily. Inflame my heart with love. Keep my faith strong and secure. I trust in Your mercy and love. Keep my hope strong always. I thank You very much for coming into my soul. I will love You always. Amen.
