Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

This poem is in the Curt Jester's web log, and may be copied as long as the author's name and the copywrite line at the bottom are copied with it. I thought it might be nice in a First Holy Communion book. Originally I was not going to do such a book b/c I'm not crafty and neither is my son, but we'll do it in a plainer, less-crafty way and it'll he his own and I bet he'll like it. Elizabeth, thanks for sharing your plans.

How Light the Bread of Angels
Kathleen Pluth
1. How light the bread of angels upon the human tongue!
This precious weight of glory that binds the Church in one!
The flesh with all its passions could never match the bliss
Of mind and heart and memory caught up in heaven's kiss.

2. How blessèd is this banquet, Christ's sweet and costly meal.
The love within the Godhead mysteriously revealed:
When God the Son gives glory to God the Father high,
As God the Holy Spirit effects the sacrifice.

3. Forth from His wounded body, the water and the blood,
The glad'ning stream of heaven swells to a mighty flood.
It winds throughout the ages and flows into the hearts
Of saints He makes from sinners with skillful healing arts.

4. This food, so light, refreshing, shall speed our pilgrim way,
Until that happy morning when dawn turns into day.
Upon the holy mountain, within God's holy hall,
The Father and the Spirit, and Christ, our all in all.

The Curt Jester also has a little funny thing about confession a bit further down from the above poem. I printed that out for my son who will be receiving Reconciliation this year.
