THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION

Today the 28th of October, 2011, the children of St Kevin’s School, Hampton Park, St Frances de Sales, Lynbrook and the children of the State Schools will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. His Grace Archbishop Denis Hart, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne would be confirming them.

Let us pray today that God in His Mercy and Goodness will bless and annoint all these children and fill them with the GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT:

Wisdom – desire for the things of God, and to direct our whole life and all our actions to His honor and glory.
Understanding – enable us to know more clearly the mysteries of faith.
Counsel – warn us of the deceits of the devil, and of the dangers to salvation.
Fortitude – strengthen us to do the will of God in all things.
Knowledge – enable us to discover the will of God in all things.
Piety – love God as a Father, and obey Him because we love Him.
Fear of the Lord – have a dread of sin and fear of offending God.

and FRUITS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT:
1. Love (Agape) 2. Joy 3. Peace
4. Long suffering 5. Kindness 6. Goodness
7.Faithfulness 8. Gentleness 9. Self-Control

We pray that they would live a fruitful life in Union with God and that they in turn would EVANGELISE those around them and BRING MANY BACK TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD. Amen.
