The Sacrament of First Holy Communion presents a thorough preparation of the Sacraments of Penance and First Holy Communion for Grade 2. This textbook has been prepared as a catechesis for parents and children so that both the parents and their child may engage in fruitful dialogue throughout this important spiritual journey. Why does God love each of us so much? How has God taught his people to love him and follow him? How does God lead us to heaven? The answers to these questions are to be found in this book. You will learn why God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to save us all, and how his saving work is still happening today through the Church and her Sacraments. These Sacramental Preparation books will help guide you through the spiritual, mental, and religious formation to participate fully in the Church’s Sacraments. These books were prepared in the light of Sacred Scripture; Sacred Tradition; the lives of holy men, women, and children; Catholic traditions; and the formational requirements of the U.S. bishops.
