Avril O’Reilly Children’s book about a young Irish girl’s first communion. Kathleen is looking at dresses with her Grandmother and explains Pinterist to her, a woman who knows nothing about computers. The grandmother tells her about how she used to cut pictures out of magazines and put them on a poster board.
The young and old work together to make the first communion a special occasion. The priest tries to tell the children that the church is a holy place and should be treated as such. Most of the children have never attended church and so the Father must teach them everything starting with how to bless themselves.
Kathleen looks and looks for the perfect communion dress. Her mother has a whole day planned of Online Shopping and Pinterest page making as she tells Kathleen stories of her first communion dress.
Kathleen want to put some Bling on her Rosary beads. She made her beads with glitter glue to follow the stories of the mysteries of the Rosary. The Joyfull mysteries, the Sorrowful mysteries, the Glorious mysteries and lastly the Luminous mysteries. ( it is adorable to hear Kathleen’s understanding of the Mysteries of the Rosary)
As the day draws near everyone is getting excited about First Communion. Kathleen tries so much to think of everyone. When other children completely miss the point of the Communion Kathleen attempts to teach them what communion is really about.
This is an adorable story about the true meaning of the First Communion.
