Prayer Request

Please pray for all the people who will be received into the Church on the Easter Vigil. Including me! I formerly received all of the Sacraments of Initiation except Confirmation. I am being Confirmed at Holy Trinity in South St. Paul on Holy Saturday. 8:00 p.m. Holy Trinity is the site of my Catholicism classes; though it's not my regular parish. I received permission to be Confirmed there because I want to be with my classmates. 22 weeks of instruction! Yippee! Praise God.

Who's your sponsor and why didn't you ask me?

(Just kidding...you'd have to be confirmed at my parish!) :-)

I wish I could be there - our Easter Vigil is at the same time.

We'll have to have a party!

As inspiring as Cathy of Alex has been WITHOUT the assistance of the Holy Spirit, I don't know if I will be able to handle her posts once they start receiving such additional Divine guidance.

We might have to insist that she put the following notice on her web page:

Casual visitors are hereby notified that reading information provided on this blog may result in unintended Acts of Faith, Hope and Charity and Spiritual or Corporal Works of Mercy and permanent alteration of their personality with respect to Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Knowedge, Piety, Fortitude and Fear of the Lord."

Adoro: Gravy guy from one of my older posts: Random Conversations Over Gravy is my sponsor. I feel like in many ways you are a co-sponsor.

Angela: Thank you

Ray: You should put that disclaimer on Stella B!

Cathy, I am honored, and I am indeed a spiritual sponsor. Just don't start calling me "Mom"!

I'm not familiar with Random Conversations over Gravy, but I am familar with Thursday Night Gumbo. Any relation?

I'm envious of the former, and congrats to that person to sponser such a candidate as you!

Ray ! Cathy HAS the benefit of the Holy Spirit! Have you not hear of Baptism of Desire??? She has the Confirmation of Desire and thus has been confirmed by the Holy Spirit himself in her writings. Now it is formal...Confirmed not only by desire, but by the Church. Now be nice to our sister!

Adoro: I can't call you Mom because you are younger then I am. That would confuse everyone more then they already are because of Terry's ever changing mug.

Yeah, RAY!

It's so exciting to think that while our Easter Vigil is going on (actually, a few hours before - ours doesn't start til 10:30PM) all these other wonderful people are either becoming Catholic or coming back to the Church.

Wowzer!

Adoro's still in her first semester of Theology School and she's already broken new theological ground by coming up with "Confirmation by Desire!.

She'll be listed no doubt in the footnotes of the next edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church! Right next to Sts Thomas Aquinas and Augustine.

I don't think so, Ray.
