Saint Josemaría made his First Holy Communion. He said years later, “I was then ten years old. An old Piarist father, a good, simple and devout man, prepared me for it, and it was he who taught me the words for a spiritual communion.” The prayer is: “I wish, Lord, to receive you with the purity, humility and devotion with which your most holy Mother received you, with the spirit and fervour of the saints.”
