Confirmation means a transformation of the spirit
by Bishop Thomas Gumbleton
When you say, "Yes, I want to be confirmed," think about it: What
are you saying yes to? You might think, Well, it's a ceremony, and we'll
go through a ritual and it'll be all over in 45 minutes or so. Then we
leave and that's it. But that's not it, is it? When you say, "I want to be
confirmed," you're really saying yes, not to a ceremony, but to Jesus.
You're saying, "I want to follow Jesus Christ. I want to be his disciple
just like those first disciples who dropped everything and followed Jesus."
So today, we're celebrating the sacrament of confirmation. The Holy
Spirit is going to come upon this church in a very powerful way if we
open ourselves, especially on these young people being confirmed, but
on the rest of us, too, because the spirit of God is being poured forth all
the time if we open ourselves. As we go on with the sacrament of confirmation, I hope that every one of us will pray that our hearts will be
opened so that we will be deeply touched by the spirit of Jesus, and so
that as we leave the church today, we'll be at least a little bit further in
our transformation, to become a real disciple of Jesus.
We'll go back out into our world. We'll be ready to be witnesses to
the love and goodness of Jesus. This message of Jesus now will begin
to spread even more because all of us open ourselves to the spirit of
Jesus, and we leave this church to be witnesses to Jesus for the rest of
our lives.
