Saturday was her big day! After preparing all year (all her life really), Matilda received Jesus for the first time. She kept saying, “I can’t believe I can take the Eucharist now!” Then she asked if we can go to daily Mass this week.
And of course we celebrated after with a party and lots of food!
“This is the wonderful truth, my dear friends: the Word, which became flesh two thousand years ago, is present today in the Eucharist.” -St. Pope John Paul II
And I tried oh so hard to finish her Icon before her Saturday, but I’m kinda a busy lady and didn’t get it done. One day soon though!
*For those asking about her dress, I didn’t get a lot of pictures because of the hustle and bustle of the day and the rain. I’ll take more later. I made the dress using an Oliver + S Pattern, the Fairy Tale Dress with tulip capped sleeves. I would have liked to use a different pattern like Garden Party from Oliver + S or Olivine from Clever Charlotte, but I let Matilda pick everything. She did a great job I think! The silk sash really made the dress!
