"Be sealed with the Holy Spirit..."

This Saturday morning, I'll be presenting eighty-nine candidates to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Bishop Grahmann (Bishop Emeritus of Dallas) will be here to administer the sacrament.  If you would, please pray for the confirmandi.
Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of thy faithful people is governed and sanctified: Receive our supplications and prayers, which we offer before thee for all members of thy holy Church, that in their vocation and ministry they may truly and devoutly serve thee; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
