Jesus Christ is truly present in the Holy Eucharist. The Church professes this fact clearly in her teaching, but our hearts often need more than facts. For this truth to penetrate the depth of our hearts--and the hearts of our children--we need stories, vivid events that happened to people just like us. Stories like that do exist, and we captured them in the beautiful book, Stories of Holy Communions.

Stories of Holy Communions is a beautiful hardbound, full-color book. It is the perfect gift for any child preparing for First Holy Communion, or any Catholic preparing for their NEXT Holy Communion. 100 pages long, the book includes the stories of 20 saints. It also has a place in the back for a new communicant to record a picture and the story of their own First Holy Communion.

Stories of Holy Communions shares powerful stories of children and the Eucharist. Divided into three sections, this book explores the stories of first, next, and last Holy Communions of individuals already declared saints, or on the path to sainthood.

Did you know that Sts. Francisco and Jacinta Marto, two of the Fatima visionaries, received their First Holy Communion from an angel? They did!
