"My Mass Kit"
At Southern Appeal, Feddie has a question about the item above:
I have mixed feelings about this sort of thing.Sarah and I decided a few weeks ago that we would buy this for Jamie's First Communion gift next year. Jamie wants to be a priest (and has aspired to that vocation since he was 2 years old), and we want to encourage him in any way we can. He would absolutely love a gift like this.
But I must say that we are a little put off by the price.
UPDATE (6 April)
This Mass kit is cheaper ($67 rather that $89) with more realistic-looking replicas:
I think maybe we'll get Jamie this one, instead.
