Gratia ad robur

The photo shows a few of the young people from Blackfen who received the Sacrament of Confirmation administered by Bishop Patrick Lynch on Thursday evening. This is a always a delightful celebration with the young people being a real credit to their families and friends. Everything went smoothly and Bishop Pat spent a good time in the Hall meeting the various families despite having had a very busy day beforehand.

The grace of confirmation was often distinguished as a "gratia ad robur" (grace for strengthening) so please say a prayer that these young people will remain strong in their faith and Catholic life.
