Confirmation Session 10: Becoming God’s goodness in the world.

Simple enough you’d think but the goodness that God expects is of a much higher standard. God wants us to be nothing less than his goodness in the world.

Lots of people think that if you’re good that’s all God requires but God in Jesus pointed out that the goodness of believers must be greater…

Confirmation Session 9: Never lose heart!

Perhaps this is the most important detail.

Never, ever, lose heart.

We might fail over and over… perhaps all our lives.

What matters is that we start again and again.

Jesus taught us to love our enemies, to turn the other cheek, to go two miles instead of one, to lend without any hope of…

Confirmation Session 8: God must be able to trust us with his gifts.

If we’re dishonest, unfaithful, selfish, then God can’t give his gifts to us because God’s gifts are little bits of Heaven and if God gives Heaven (or even a tiny piece of Heaven) to a dishonest or unfaithful or selfish person he’s creating hell, turning Heaven into hell.

It’s a bit…

Confirmation Session 7: It is wise to apologize for the hurt we’ve caused to God before asking for his gifts.

There’s stuff that we do – being dishonest, unfaithful, selfish, spiteful, stealing, lots of stuff – that offends and hurts other people. But what we do to other people we also do to God – so this stuff also hurts and offends God.

Stuff that hurts God and other people is…

Confirmation Session 6: How do I pray – outside Mass and in (during) Mass?

Outside Mass: Create the space and the time and use your own words.

In prayer speak to God as you would to another person, as you would to a friend using your own words. What do you speak about…

Confirmation Session 5: Understanding Holy Mass Part 2 – Mass is the greatest prayer of all if we believe God!

Do we believe that Jesus is God? Do we take Christmas seriously or have we made it into something else; something that doesn’t take God in Jesus seriously?


Do we…

Confirmation Session 4: Understanding Holy Mass Part 1 – we cannot understand Mass unless we’ve grasped the meaning of the Cross.

The central Christian image is the Cross.


How do we make sense of that?

Confirmation Session 3: Prayer – convincing God we’re serious

Prayer is the use of our freedom to invite God to breach our personal space.

It’s our consent, our permission given to God. Such is God’s respect for human freedom that without this invitation… this consent… this permission… God will not enter our…

Confirmation Session 2: How we choose God

We must convince God that we’re serious about him, that we’re sincere, 100% genuine, otherwise God will leave us alone.

God will not give us his gifts

He just won’t!

So, how do we convince God that we’re serious, sincere, genuine?

We will convince God that we’re serious, sincere, and genuine by:
