AS A GIFT for my First Holy Communion, my mom and dad presented me with my first Bible. It was, of course, a Bible meant and designed for children. It included illustrations depicting many of the biblical passages. The first page had my name, First Holy Communion date and who it was from. It was actually my first encounter with Sacred Scripture. I was excited to have a Bible of my own. And I still have that Bible with me, 27 years later.
