This week, thirty one of our children will be confirmed. These children will be seen now as young adults in the Church, taking responsibility for their faith lives. It is too bad that some see this as their graduation from religion and now need to do no more. But in reality this is just their beginning to exercise their faith on their own, just as the Apostles did on that first Pentecost.

Do you continue to learn about your faith? Do you read the Bible? Have you read a good spiritual book recently or attended a seminar or class on faith? We are never too old to learn. And the more we learn about our faith the more joy and peace comes into our hearts.
