Preparation for the First Communion

    "...First Communion changes them (referring to the street children in Paris) completely. They are not the same! Their heart opens and we discover attitudes of generosity and gentleness... My friend, this is our work, but it is still in its infancy since there is still much work to be done..."

---St. Peter Julian Eymard to M. Perret, Dec. 25, 1859
