Just curious if confirmandi are still being taught that one of the things the Sacrament does for them is make them Soldiers for Christ. I was taught this and took it seriously. Not because I’m warlike but because sometimes we are in a battle - against evil - and we are obligated to fight.
At times like these we live in, which I could never have imagined when I was confirmed at age 11, sometimes I feel like a wimpy soldier. It’s like I need new training exercises. And to pray asking the Holy Spirit to give me more strength and wisdom. How about you?
