First Reconciliation – Catholic Moments

About First Reconciliation

There is no question about Jesus’ love for children, the most helpless members of society. When some parents wished to bring their children to Jesus for his blessing, his disciples tried to keep them away. Jesus would have none of it.

13 Then little children were being brought to him in order that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples spoke sternly to those who brought them; 14 but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” 15 And he laid his hands on them and went on his way. (Matthew 19: 13 – 15)

Jesus continues to welcome children today. The primary way he welcomes them is through the sacraments. In Baptism, they are freed from original sin and become sons and daughters of God in a new way. At the age of discretion they are being prepared to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ in Holy Communion. Before Holy Communion, following the requirements of the Church, they will be prepared to receive Jesus’ forgiveness in the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation. (CCC 1457)Read more.
