A few Sundays ago the young people preparing for confirmation at St Ignatius Parish here in Winnipeg were blessed and were given a small cross to wear to help them assume the responsibilities they will take on their shoulders personally on Pentecost Sunday and to give them strength and courage for the future.
We prayed the cross would help them be confirmed in their Faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again!
Most of us have received the initiation sacraments, Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation, some many many years ago. Easter is a good time to remember them. Years ago when we were baptized, our parents committed themselves to teach us the Faith by word and example.
