Father made sure today was very special for him and looked after him well.
All the home education families attended and those who are not Catholic or too young to receive Holy Communion went up for a blessing.
It really felt like a community today (more than usual) with everyone there to share Ronan’s special day and offer him love and support.
The Mass readings were about finding our vocation and Father used the Gospel to talk about not carrying our excess baggage around.
Father came and joined us for a while too which was good.
Ronan received some really thoughtful gifts of prayer books and crosses, but the one that I personally really liked was one K had made.
She had a little box and inside were a number of little scrolls of paper each with a prayer or a line from Scripture printed on it. What a lovely idea! Ronan can use those prayers and Bible quotes or he can add his own as he grows up.
