This theoretical paper discusses the spirituality of childhood within the context of Catholic sacramentality, specifically the child’s experience of the Sacrament of Eucharist. The authors argue that readiness for a child’s reception of the Eucharist needs to take into account the spiritual being of the child, as well as the child’s cognitive capacity to grasp the meaning of the Eucharist. Future research directions arising from this theoretical paper are discussed in the conclusion.
