In 1856 on the eighth anniversary of his First Holy Communion, the Servant of God Hermann Cohen said: “Let us unite with the Archangel and join him in our salute to Mary. Yes, Mary, we greet you, our glorious dawn.”
Since I hope that I will soon have the happiness of making my First Communion, I will be even more well behaved...
The day chosen for First Communion was (...) May 8.
I saw that he was my whole life
I saw my child so recollected, so earnest
To my dear little Thérèse.... A ma chère petite Thérèse. Souvenir, 3 janvier 1884
