Confirmation - Lesson 22
While no one is deserving of baptism, the baptized have a right to celebrate the other sacraments; indeed the right of the baptized to receive the sacraments is so fundamental that it is enumerated specifically in the canonical rights and duties pertaining to all the faithful. Furthermore, the faithful also have the right to be adequately prepared for the sacraments. See canon 843, §1 - 213 - and canon 842, §2
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
And kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And you will renew the face of the earth.
by the light of the Holy Spirit
you have taught the hearts of your faithful.
In the same Spirit
help us to relish what is right
and always rejoice in your consolation.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
2 Timothy 3: 14-17
