Be Sealed with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit
“Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the ‘Sacraments of Christian initiation,’ whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For ‘by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.'”
–Catechism of the Catholic Church, Article 2, 1285
The Sacrament of Confirmation is the one that suggests to us the wonderful in-pouring of the strength of the Holy Spirit. These gifts enable us to walk with strength and conviction through the world, focused on God’s love and His plan. This Sacrament can be seen as God’s injection of spiritual vitamins for the journey through life.
At Saint Ambrose, parishioners in the 9th grade are invited to participate in our program.
