At Mass today, there were 6 people who entered into the Church. They had all been Baptized in the past, so today they received the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist to complete their initiation. When they were Confirmed, the priest literally poured the chrism oil onto their heads. Then he rubbed it into their head and hair. It was a sight to behold. I can’t even imagine what it must have been like for those newly Confirmed. I could smell the fragrant scent of the oil clear back where my mom and I were sitting. It took me back to all those Confirmations I witnessed as a Youth Minister. I’m sure I was privileged to see hundreds of young people receive the Sacrament. I prayed for them then, that they would allow this extraordinary grace of God to become part of who they were. And I prayed for them all today.
I Found God today in the beautiful Sacrament of Confirmation.
