This past Friday a large group of our teen parishioners received the Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Caggiano. They were sealed in the Spirit and sealed as fully-initiated “living stones” in the Church.
It has been a long preparation for this day, and we should rejoice that these young men and women have committed themselves to this outward sign of an inner reality. They share from now on in a mystical way in the work of the Church. Their prayers are effective in carrying out and fulfilling the will of God in the world.
Please keep them especially in your prayers this week. They are listed on the front of the bulletin with the name of the saint they have chosen, please call upon this unseen cloud of witnesses to keep them strong in faith and love.
