I thought I had seen Legos for everything, but then I went to my nephew’s First Communion. It was something that looked like it could have come from Spencer Gifts instead of the religious products store, but he received a Lego kit just for the occasion.

Father Leopold Celebrates Mass is an actual kit, not made by Legos but a generic version of the same thing. It comes with the appropriate bricks to make an altar, lectern, gift table and tabernacle. Fr. Leopold has an assortment of vestments in different colors, bottles of wine, a missal and even hosts.

Even more over-the-top is that you can also buy matching thank you notes. What could be better for an 8-year old First Communicant?

Someone with a creative mind put together Legos and First Communion and is making money on the idea. [They probably were wondering what to buy for a boy when the only thing ever on his wish list is Lego kits!]

Great ideas are often the combination of two ordinary things, paired together in a new way. How can you connect the dots differently today to make something new?
