Four parishes came together for a celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation during our Sunday Mass of Pentecost. This made for an exceptionally large number of candidates, and a rich (and long) celebration. With hindsight, maybe we could have skimped on some elements of the Mass: perhaps recited the Gloria, and omitted the second reading and the sequence. What do you think?

Bob Hurd’s Come to me and drink has several verses mentioning the Spirit, including these lines based on Romans 5:5:

Into our hearts the love of God has been poured
through the Spirit that dwells within.
