1880s Cabinet Photo~young Girl In First Communion Dress~crazy Quilt~ossian, Ia For Sale
The velvet cloth draped on the table which holds the candle, crucifix and rosary is trimmed with a crazy quilt patchwork border.
Crazy quilting became a fad in the United States during the 1880s. The Japanese Exhibit in the 1876 Philadelphia Centennital Exposition inspired the crazy quilt fad in the United States.
Excerpted from Catholicism / The Early Church:
Delaying communion reception until children become older was a recognition that young boys and girls would likely not appreciate the gravity of the ritual. Some places forbade children from receiving communion until age fourteen.
Pope Pius X sought to increase communion reception among all Catholics, and so decreed in 1910 that children should receive first communion at age seven. Only in the twentieth century has this become the common age at which Catholic children receive their first communion.
