Lent 2018

Wednesday of Holy Week


Today we read about the Sacrament of Confirmation and are reminded of the choice we made to be full members of the Church when we were confirmed.


"Dear brothers and sisters, being the Church, to be the People of God, in accordance with the Father's great design of love, means to be the leaven of God in this humanity of ours. It means to proclaim and to bring the God's salvation to this world of ours, so often led astray, in need of answers that give courage, hope and new vigor for the journey. . . . We must go out through these doors and proclaim the Gospel." 

—Pope Francis, General Audience, June 12, 2013


O God, by the light of the Holy

Spirit you have taught the hearts

of your faithful. In the same Spirit,

help us to know what is truly right

and always to rejoice in your

consolation. We ask this through

Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

—USCCA, 534
