Our Lady of the Visitation - Shippensburg PA
This week's lesson continues our conversation about the Sacrament of Confirmation.
In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Holy Spirit completes the grace of baptism and offers the newly confirmed strength as a true witness of Christ. Thus, the newly confirmed is “more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed” (cf. CCC, 1285). Thus, the Holy Spirit completes what was begun at baptism!
As my students know, we are becoming SOLDIERS FOR CHRIST and AMBASSADORS TO THE KINGDOM in Confirmation!
The gifts of the Holy Spirit associated with Confirmation are strengths (or virtues) that Christian living requires if it is to be fruitful and complete.
This week we also talked more about the Holy Spirit and its role in our lives, as well as in the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Students will be given a little quiz after Thanksgiving about the Sacrament of Confirmation. Here's what will be on our quiz.
1.) The 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit:
3.) What are the symbols of confirmation and what do they mean?
If your child is learning virtually, please review Chapter 11 and 12 with him or her. I encourage you to have your child complete the weekly challenges that are featured in the chapters as well.
