First Communion Scripture Passage


Hi. I am making up the invitations for my son’s first communion invitations. I wanted to add a fitting and meaningful scripture passage on the invite. Any suggestions?


Perhaps a selection from the “Bread of Life” passage in John 6?


“I have no taste for corruptible food nor for the pleasures of this life. I desire the bread of God, which is the flesh of Jesus Christ, who was of the seed of David; and for drink I desire his blood, which is love incorruptible” (*Letter to the Romans *7:3 [A.D. 110]).

…perhaps a bit long…but a worthy sentiment found right on the CA Apologetics page on the Eucharist.
