Does Your Life Smell Like Chrism? (#526, Easter 5)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Easter, 5th Sunday. At Confirmation you were sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit as God’s child, servant, and messenger. Just like ancient kings sealed their manuscripts, so God has set his seal upon you. This should give us confidence in God.

God fills us with his life so that we can love boldly in words and in deeds. Let’s prune away the wasteful, selfish growth so that we can spread the Chrism of holiness to all we touch.

(3 May 2015)

Point to Ponder: When did someone leave Chrism on you after a conversation or encounter?

Point to Discuss: Talk to someone about your experience of Confirmation.
