The Little Flower’s First Communion — Saint Therese of Lisieux: A Gateway

The day chosen for First Communion was usually the octave of Ascension Thursday.  In this year of 1884, however, on account of the illness of Mother Prioress, whose death was feared to be imminent, the chaplain decided to have the ceremony two weeks earlier.  It was accordingly set for May 8.

For the previous month the First Communicants were required to become full boarders, so that they might find it more easy to attend Mass every morning and prepare in greater recollection for the coming of Jesus. . .
