Confirmed!

Kathleen Louise was confirmed this March at a beautiful Confirmation Mass through Fr. Rick's church, St. Mary of Pine Bluff. She picked one of my favorite people of all time as her Confirmation sponsor (apparently one of her favorite people too), and she chose the name Cecilia as her Confirmation name, in honor of St. Cecilia. Since Kathleen is quite the musician, St. Cecilia was the perfect fit.

We pray for Kathleen, newly filled with the grace of the Holy Spirit:


English
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.
V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray. O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Latin
Veni, Sancte Spiritus, reple tuorum corda fidelium: et tui amoris in eis ignem accende.
V. Emitte Spiritum tuum, et creabuntur.
R. Et renovabis faciem terrae.
Oremus. Deus, qui corda fidelium Sancti Spiritus illustratione docuisti: da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere; et de eius semper consolatione gaudere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum.

Amen.
