So, the 16th is coming. Faster and faster and faster. And I keep thinking okay, I'm ready for confirmation BUT ... what do I say? Do I have to say anything? Does my sponsor have to say anything? I know to respond "I do" after the creed but other than that not much.
I haven't any classes under my belt. Fr. gave me some books to read and I've read through them, and will again (and again) but I've never been to a confirmation ceremony and everyone I know that might have been to one, can no longer recall it.
So, what happens? Similar to baptism? At our church, before mass starts he calls the parents with their infants to the font, and everyone turns. They're welcomed and blessed and mass starts as normal. After I believe the homily, Fr and the families return to the font, babies are baptised and blessed and return to their seats again. Then things proceed as they might normally til the end where Fr. blesses the mothers and fathers. Mass has ended, go in peace. Thanks be to God.
Will it be similar for confirmation? Only without the font?
I am hoping Fr. has a moment to answer this briefly for me after mass today, but thought I'd pop it on here too.
Sorry for being THAT pain in the toosh
