DDD is making his first reconciliation next month and we are busy preparing him to receive this great sacrament.
I wanted to share with you an idea that I did for Sweet Pea two years ago when it was her special day.
Congratulations on your First Reconciliation!
Enclosed are a few “gifts” for your big day:
Eraser: God has “erased” your sins, you are ready to start anew.
Lifesavers: Reconciliation is a “lifesaver”. It allows us to reunite ourselves with God by purging the sin from our soul.
Sunglasses: allow yourself to “soak” in the Son’s rays….be in the presence of God during your penance.
Thank you cards: a reminder that you have to be thankful for this sacrament, and that you have a God that loves you.
$10 bill: 10 means “perfection/ completeness” in scripture. We hope you “cash in” on this sacrament and allow the Lord to complete his work in you.
I was looking for something “unique” to celebrate such an amazing time in her faith walk and she loved this. I will definitely be doing this for DDD. I might have to change it up a bit but the sentiment will be the same.
Hope this is useful for you!
