THEIR OWN 'DAY'

By Pat Jones

AN American priest with a great love and understanding of children, is trying to abolish " First Communion Day", that day on which, he observed, children had their minds so full of distractions such as gifts, white dresses, family parties, their place in the procession . . . everything, in fact, except their First Communion! The priest also noticed that parents were being pushed more and more into the background. • until their only role was to stand at the back of the crowd and try to glimpse their child in the procession.
