    Beautiful Cindy and very well written. Thank you for teaching all those 2nd Graders and helping them to prepare for this most Holy Sacrament. By the way, you are so right about the bow only before Communion and not to bless yourself. I learned at the seminary (with Mike) that we bless ourselves with holy water when we walk into the Church. That shows us asking for God’s blessing. We genuflect and bow to show our reverence to God. Asking for God’s blessing and showing reverence to God are two distinct actions.
    PS. Glad you’re teaching at St. Jude, neighbor!

    Thanks, Donna. I am glad to be a part of the St Jude parish community. I am happy to share our catechetical ministry with you, Cara and Anita…..and thanks to Mike for his service to the Church.
