“We Must Go Out”: A Podcast About Confirmation

“When you get Confirmed, what happened to the Apostles is the exact same thing that will happen to you . . . maybe minus the visible tongues of fire . . . I don’t know, I’m not making any guarantees. But the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit will actually be upon you. This is what happens in the Sacrament of Confirmation, that we receive these gifts. And these gifts are what?

St. Paul writes about them in the book of Galatians – the fruits of the Spirit are: love, and joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. You receive the power to live a new life, not just for yourself but for other people.”

But that’s not all! Listen to this podcast by Fr. Mike Schmitz from Lighthouse Media to learn more about the incredible Sacrament of Confirmation. Click on the image or link below to download the podcast and head over to for more great podcasts.
