First Holy Communion will change my life because Jesus will travel into my body and he will guide me wherever I go. Since Jesus is now with me, I need to behave. I must follow The Ten Commandments and do lots of works of mercy!
As I receive Jesus’ body and blood, I will praise God and ask forgiveness for my sins. I know I should try to not sin because it’s like sticking a nail in Jesus’ hand when he was crucified. Jesus died for my sins and it was painful. When I look at the cross, I remember Jesus’ sacrifice. He died for us. I am sad because he died. But I am also happy because he freed us from sin.
When I take my First Holy Communion, I will be more aware of my actions. I will try my best to help my yayas, follow my parents, and play with my little brother whenever he asks me to. In school, I will try to solve fights that happen with my friends when we play games. I will help anyone who gets hurt.
I will do all these because these are the things that Jesus did when he was alive on earth and I want to follow his example. My sacrifice is small compared to Jesus’ sacrifice. But I think that as long as I do the right thing, Jesus will love what I am doing.
Jesus is our Savior and I am so happy to be receiving him during First Holy Communion!
