Radley has been preparing for his First Communion all year and this weekend is the big day. We have obviously been talking quite a bit about this at home so Emersyn has become increasingly interested into what was formerly known as the "little snackie" Ryan and I get at mass.
Emmy: So Radley is going to get a snack at church now, too?
Me: Yes, Radley will get to take communion with me and Daddy.
Emmy: The body of Christ, right? Like his real body?
Me: Yes, it's the body of Christ just as Jesus gave the disciples.
Emmy: eyes wide open What if he THROWS.UP?!?!
Me: He won't.
Emmy: And then he will DRINK the BLOOD!!!????
Me: Yes, and then he gets the blood of Christ.
Emmy: For real? His BLOOD?
Emmy: I would definitely throw up.
The Catholic struggle is real.
