96 Soldiers of Christ...
This will be a grace-filled and busy week. On Saturday I will be presenting ninety-six candidates to Bishop Cantu, to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. Forty-four of them are our second-grade children, who will also be receiving their First Holy Communion. The remaining number of candidates are other children in the parish who are not enrolled in the school, and also a large number of adults -- converts to the Catholic faith, or reverts (baptized Catholics who fell away years ago, and who have now been called back to the practice of their faith).
Fr Moore and I have begun hearing their confessions, but we have lots more scheduled throughout the week. Please pray for all those who will be receiving the bountiful grace of God through the sacraments, that they all may be steadfast soldiers of Christ!
