Quote of the day: 8 May

Remembrance of 1st communion to my dear little Céline from your little sister


LT 13, 8 May 1884 (Photo credit: Carmel de Lisieux, with permission)

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. . .
