God calls each of us to a life of goodness. Our yearnings to become more like God invite us to lifelong practices of conversion. The sacrament of confirmation is a pivotal moment anchoring a Catholic's commitment to God.
But, do our current sacramental preparation programs really inspire candidates to turn toward the Lord? Leonard J. DeLorenzo demonstrates how preparation for confirmation can be a life-giving experience for candidates and those who accompany them. Candidates, sponsors, and parents will together foster a holistic formation of mind, heart, hands, and habits needed for transformation into a source of goodness in the world.
This book is ideal for use by RCIA sponsors and candidates, as well as parents and sponsors of younger confirmation students. Parents and sponsors will be empowered to be primary formators for the candidate in their life, as they will benefit from discovering more about God as a source of goodness and see how to convey God's message to Confirmation candidates.
