What do I need to know in order to be confirmed in the Catholic Church? How can I best prepare myself to fully understand and appreciate the dynamics occurring in, with, and through this Sacrament of Initiation? The following online lessons will provide answers to many of the questions involved in the ongoing process of becoming a Catholic confirmed in the Faith.
(A special note about how to study this program. Pray before, after, and during each session. This is an exercise in spiritual formation, not just religious education. If, by praying the rosary one time, you received all the graces possible from it, why would Our Blessed Mother ask us to pray the Rosary daily? The fact of the matter is, each time you pray the same words with an even deeper disposition, in both the Rosary and this program, you receive something different, something deeper and more profound than the last time you did it. Don’t be put off by repetition. As our tradition says: “repetitio est mater studiorum” – “repetition is the mother of learning.”
We begin with this prayer:
Come, Holy Spirit, Creator blest,
And in our souls take up your rest;
Come with your grace and heavenly aid
To fill the hearts which you have made.
O Comforter, to you we cry,
O heavenly gift of God Most High,
O fount of life and fire of love,
And sweet anointing from above.
You in your sevenfold gifts are known;
You, finger of God's hand we own;
You, promise of the Father, you
Who do the tongue with power imbue.
Kindle our senses from above,
And make our hearts o'erflow with love;
With patience firm and virtue high
The weakness of our flesh supply.
Far from us drive the foe we dread,
And grant us your peace instead;
So shall we not, with you for guide,
Turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may your grace on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know;
And you, through endless times confessed,
Of both the eternal Spirit blest.
Now to the Father and the Son,
Who rose from death, be glory given,
With you, O holy Comforter,
Henceforth by all in earth and heaven. Amen.
