A funny incident took place during a 7-year-old girl’s First Communion, causing the priest and the congregation to struggle to suppress their laughter. The girl’s mother, Stefanie Heidebrink, shared a video of the moment, which has now garnered over 10 million views and numerous comments.
In the video, Brynley, the 7-year-old, approaches the altar in a Roman Catholic church to receive the Eucharist for the first time. The Eucharist represents the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Before the ceremony, Brynley, who was both excited and a little nervous, asked her mom how much she should drink from the chalice.
Stefanie told her to “tilt it until it touches your lips, and then you’re done. You don’t even have to take a sip.”
However, when the priest said “the blood of Christ” and handed the chalice to Brynley, she took a big gulp instead. She held the chalice to her mouth for a good 10 seconds, leaving everyone in the church bewildered, including the priest who didn’t know how to react.
Stefanie had second thoughts about recording the moment but decided to do it anyway. She expressed her relief, saying, “Thank God, I did.” Brynley casually walked back afterward, and the whole church burst into laughter.
Stefanie mentioned that this wasn’t the first time her family had a memorable First Communion experience. A few years earlier, her son shared his opinion about the wine with the entire congregation. After taking the wine, he announced that it tasted worse than Bud Lite Lime, which happens to be his father’s favorite beer. This made Stefanie worry that people might think she was serving alcohol to her children.
Regarding Brynley, Stefanie said her daughter was somewhat embarrassed and didn’t like the taste of the wine. However, Stefanie assured her that there was nothing to be concerned about since she herself drinks wine in the same way.
Wow, what an unforgettable moment for this family! Please share this story.
