I’m new here. My name is Kris, and I am Catholic.
My son, who is 8, recently received his First Holy Communion. He did not have any problems during this, and everything seemed fine.
The following week, we went up to receive. I kept him in front of me to make sure he didn’t forget anything and all seemed to go well.
When I got back to our seats, he had a funny look on his face, and he took the Host from his mouth and said it tasted bad. (I consumed the Host)
Well, now he refuses communion completely. I offered to have him only receive from the chalice, but even that he is refusing. I am at a loss. Does anyone have any suggestions?
