I am an Elect set to be confirmed and recieve first communion this Saturday. Very excited!
I read over my parish's guide to the Easter Vigil, and I'm a little concerned about the scripted response to the renewal of baptismal promises. It's "We believe" instead of "I do." I've tried searching for a standard form on the USCCB and vatican websites and can't seem to find one.
"We believe" doesn't seem like an adequate answer to yes or no questions, especially not the first ones in the order of renewals. I think I'm concerned because my current priest mentioned conversationally that this was the "tradition" at this parish, and I've attended lectures with the Priest Emeritus of the parish (23 years at this parish before current priest) who claimed that there was no such thing as sin. In that light, it seems like "we believe" is merely a scapegoat to deflect having to affirm the rejection of satan, sin, and obedience to the Magesterium and Papal Office.
