Day 177: The Celebration of Confirmation (1297-1305)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise, and we give you glory. We thank you for this sacrament of Confirmation. We thank you for the sacrament of this holy anointing where you pour out your Holy Spirit upon your children and send them forth and transform them. You increase the grace of the Holy Spirit. You increase the fruits, the gifts of the Holy Spirit inside each and every one of them. You open us up to a special strength to spread and defend the Faith by word and action. And we give you praise. We thank you so much for giving us the abundance of your grace in the rite of Confirmation. Help us to be open to that grace. Help us to open our hearts to allow you to move in our lives. But help us to be courageous. Help us to be generous in how we respond to your incredible gift of Confirmation. We make this prayer in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen”
