The Joy of Confirmation:

Today, I am filled with an immense sense of joy and reverence of the profound sacrament of Confirmation. This sacred sacrament marks a pivotal moment in our spiritual journey. It is a moment of empowerment and a deepening of commitment to our faith.

Confirmation, often described as the sacrament of maturity in the Catholic Church. As a result, it is a beautiful culmination of our baptismal promises. It is a moment when we affirm our dedication to the teachings of Christ.  In addition, during the sacrament we are given again the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These gifts are meant to guide us on our path of discipleship.

The Significance of the Sacrament:

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it is easy to lose sight of the spiritual significance of Confirmation. Therefore, I urge you to pause and reflect on the transformative power Confirmation holds. Because of Confirmation, we are bestowed with beautiful gifts.

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit:
  • wisdom
  • understanding
  • counsel
  • fortitude
  • knowledge
  • piety
  • fear of the Lord.

These gifts are infused within us by the Holy Spirit.  They equip us to navigate the complexities of life with grace and courage.

I liken Confirmation to a flame being kindled within us. This flame of faith burns brightly and illuminates our journey. This flame, nurtured by prayer, study, and participation in the sacramental life of the Church, has the power to ignite hearts and inspire others to embrace their own faith journey.

More Than a Milestone:

Confirmation is more than just a personal milestone; instead it is a call to mission. As confirmed Christians, we are called to not only be witnesses of Christ in the world, but also to share His love and mercy with everyone we encounter. Our faith is not meant to be hidden away, but instead it is to be lived out boldly and authentically. We are to be people shining as a beacon of hope in a world often shrouded in darkness.

I invite you to reflect on your own Confirmation journey. First, how has the Holy Spirit moved within you since that sacred day? Second, have you embraced the gifts bestowed upon you? Finally, how are you living out your call to mission in your daily life?

What Do We Do After?

As we continue on our journey of faith, let us hold fast to the promises made at Confirmation. First, let us cultivate a spirit of openness to the Holy Spirit. Then may we allow it to guide and transform us according to God’s will. Second, let us boldly proclaim the Good News to all the corners of the earth. As a result,  may we remember the power and grace come from our Confirmation.
