This outstanding First Communion DVD, based on the classic 1925 book by Msgr. William R. Kelly, is a must for religion classes and parents raising their children in the Catholic faith.
The decrees of Pope St. Pius X and Canon 854 of the 1917 Code of Canon Law determined just what knowledge a child must have to receive First Holy Communion. This new DVD combines animation, live action, sacred art and music to impart this necessary knowledge in simple story form.
In this unique presentation, young Catholic hearts and minds will encounter the Story of Creation, the Miracles of Jesus, the Last Supper, Confession, the Mass, and much more.
Intended for children in the lower primary grades, included are some basic prayers, plus simple forms of the Act of Contrition and the Acts of Faith, Hope and Love, As Msgr. Kelly wrote in 1925, "Easy words and a little rhyme please a child; and when he knows what he is saying, his prayer is better said."
Your little ones will want to visit Brother John's medieval monastery and join the children of his timeless parish church again and again as they painlessly prepare for First Holy Communion.
Bonus Features include two "Sing-a-long Songs,"Three Persons in One God", "I Assist at Mass" and "Anima Christi". Running Time: approx. 30 minutes
