Would not it be a great joy for our teens to receive Confirmation Gifts that they can cherish forever on such a special occasion?
How beautiful it is seeing our pre-teens preparing for this Sacrament!
Now our children get the opportunity to profess their faith all by themselves! Yes to Jesus! And of course we are eager to handle our presents for this occassion out to our loved ones!
During this Sacrament we receive a deeper effect of the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit in our souls. We get rooted more deeply in our relationship with God. We receive the strength to remain faithful to Jesus while our bond to the Church gets also stronger!
We receive graces to give testimony as Christians, people who are born in the Spirit of God, people who became His beloved children!
In the Acts of the Apostles 8:14-17 we can read how the Apostles sent Peter and John to Samaria. There they prayed with the new believers for them to receive the Holy Spirit. The new believers told them the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them, for they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
Let's pray for our kids who are preparing for this Sacrament that they can be very attentive during this ceremony! Now they can reaffirm the commitment to the Faith their parents and Godparents have made for them while being infants.
Of course it will be a great joy for our teens to receive the most special Confirmation Presents on one of the most special occasions in their lives as young Catholics!
