God’s blessings on those confirmed this weekend in Eldora. May the Holy Spirit dwell in their hearts always and keep them strong in the faith.
Jackson (J.T.) Uhlenberg
Heavenly Father, in the Old Testament, your prophets and priests would anoint the faithful with oil. Through this holy anointing, you made known to them their mission on earth. On Pentecost, at the birth of the Church, you sent your Holy Spirit on the disciples. On that day, the promise you gave of your Spirit was fulfilled to the whole world. As these newly confirmed go out into the world, preserve the gifts of the Spirit in their hearts. May the completion of their initiation through Confirmation help them fulfill their baptismal promises as members of the Body of Christ. Amen.
