YOUNG MARTYRS AND SAINTS OF THE EUCHARIST
Many young boys and girls became famous for one thing, their love of Christ Jesus in the Eucharist.
They believed in the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist so much that they longed to receive him in Holy Communion.
In the early church children had to be 12 years old before making their holy communion, this because the Bishop had to make sure that they really believed that Jesus was truly in the sacred host of Holy Communion.
Their love for him was so great that they gave their lives for him.
