God feeds his people in the most personal and intimate way. When we receive the Eucharist, we are being fed by God and changed in mind and heart by this most wondrous gift. Fed by the Lord provides at-home scriptural formation for children preparing for First Communion. This resource, written for the adults who guide them, nourishes relationships between children and parents, as well as the Lord who feeds them. Fed by the Lord focuses on twelve stories of God feeding his people. By studying together the actions of God in Scripture adults can prepare children to connect with the Word of God––Jesus Christ––who reveals himself through this biblical journey and comes to us personally in the Eucharist.

Reviews

"Fed by the Lord is a beautiful way for parents to prepare their children to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. This book illuminates the generous nature of God and his enduring faithfulness. Leonard DeLorenzo guides parents into an emotionally stirring meditation on each passage of Scripture that allows them to convey the wonder and power of each narrative to their children in dialogical, engaging ways. Using this book, I have no doubt that children (and their parents) will experience the profound intimacy with Jesus that is promised in their First Communion and in every Mass to follow. I am using this book with my youngest daughter and am so thankful for it.""
Jason Simon, President of The Evangelical Catholic

"Fed by the Lord is an indispensable guide for parents, caregivers, and educators seeking to ground sacramental preparation in the heart of Scripture. Combining rich exegesis with sensitively calibrated teaching guides, this much-needed book forms parents for the vital but often intimidating task of inviting children into eucharistic encounter with the God who nourishes and sustains us. In so doing, it beckons children and parents alike to look with new eyes at the holy work of sharing a meal. I look forward to using it with my own children as they prepare for First Communion."
Susan Bigelow Reynolds, Assistant Professor of Catholic Studies, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
