Maria is a 7-year-old child who is about to receive her First Communion. Maria shares with viewers some of the family and class projects that helped her prepare for, understand, and appreciate the eucharist. The purpose of this program is to help children understand that the celebration of the eucharist nourishes us--the faithful--with Christ, the Bread of Life. Through this presentation, the children may come to realize that the eucharist is the heart of the Christian life for the church and also for each Christian. The best time to show this program to children is at the beginning of the First Communion preparation period.
