First Communion Keepsakes

First Communion Keepsakes

Even though one can plan on receiving communion thousands of time throughout the lives, the First Communion remains unique.   Even the elderly fondly remember incidents that occurred the day they made their First Communion. 

There are many ways to remember ones Communion from photographs, to significant gifts in the form of special writings or books, statues.   The First Communion Candle is sometimes kept to be lit when one is Confirmed and again when one is Married or possibly enters a religious order.
           
In Protestant faiths Communion if often not received until Confirmation so that doubles the significance of that special day. Items of jewelry such as necklaces, pendants, bracelets, charms or even key chains are appropriate and popular gifts.

Charms on this bracelet represent the Communion chalice (the universal symbol for the Eucharist)

The Round Holy Communion Medal is a unique way to commerate one's First Communion.   The chalice in memory of the cup Jesus used at the Last Supper with the host floating about the top to signify the sacrifice of Jesus' body and blood is the universal symbol of the Most Holy Eucharist and is precious to all of Christianity.

The formal name is the 'Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary'.  The history of the Rosary associates it with St. Dominic de Guzman (1170-1221) who founded the order of the Dominicans.  The Dominicans have been the foremost promoter of the Rosary throughout history.  The fifteen-Mystery form of the Rosary was established in 1569 by St. Pope Pius V.  Pope John Paul II added five more mysteries to the Rosary in 2002.  The combined 20 Mysteries of the Rosary tell of the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious  and  Luminous Mysteries in the Blessed Virgin's life.
