My baby is doing her first confession this month. We've worked through the book together and she has a retreat coming up at school this week about it. It was a wonderful learning opportunity for me. I've explained confession numerous times to adults but it's different with children.
She asked the usual questions but it was difficult to word it in a way a seven year old can understand. I know she's grasped the concept and will make a wonderful confession when the time comes.
She's very excited because this is one more step until she can receive the Eucharist. She is so excited and happy about that experience. It brings me great joy to see how important it is to her and how much she understands about the Eucharist.
