Drawing on St Paul and on Calvin, the author argues for the presence of children at communion. The collapse of the life of spirituality, and of family prayers underlines this, namely the presence of the whole family together at Communion. A Melbourne example is cited, where the result was the largest confirmation class in the history of the congregation. Arguments about the need for understanding, or religious experience, are countered. The matter should be approached pastorally, not legally.
