Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285

This week we celebrated some anniversaries of the day that (some) of the kids received the sacrament of Confirmation.

Monday was Thomas’, Anthony”s, Alexander’s Confirmation anniversary…yes, these three were all confirmed on the same day. We celebrated with Indian takeaway…

Wednesday was Jonathon’s Confirmation anniversary..and this was celebrated on Thursday (yeah, we have that sort of life!) with pizza.

My rag doll from Singapore…no, no, it is not a voodoo doll! I promise!
