Confirmation Prayer & Photos

Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of thy Faithful;
and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.
Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created,
and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
Saints Patrick and Therese, the Little Flower where chosen as Confirmation names
Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit,
that my thoughts may all be holy.

Act in me, O Holy Spirit,
that my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit,
that I love but what is holy.

Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit,
to defend all that is holy.

Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,
that I always may be holy. Amen.

Spirit of wisdom and understanding, enlighten our minds to perceive the mysteries of the universe in relation to eternity.

The boys standing by each of their Confirmation saints
Spirit of right judgment and courage, guide us and make us firm in our baptismal decision to follow Jesus' way of love. 

Bishop Francis Malooly
 Spirit of knowledge and reverence, help us to see the lasting value of justice and mercy in our everyday dealings with one another. May we respect life as we work to solve problems of family and nation, economy and ecology. 

Spirit of God, spark our faith, hope and love into new action each day. Fill our lives with wonder and awe in your presence which penetrates all creation. Amen.
God bless our children, sealed in Christ.

Congratulations to them both! I love that you were able to get a picture of them next to the window or statue with their patron saints. That's so cool!
