First Communion Day

Today I was delighted to have another one of those "firsts" as a priest: I ministered first Holy Communion (The Precious Blood) to someone whom I had also baptized.

"But Father, you have been a priest for less than two years, how can this be?"

Well, she had been baptized in the later years of her canonical infancy. (To learn about canonical majority, minority, and infancy, take out your Code of Canon Law and look at c. 97.)
