Explore Last Rites, Holy Spirit, and more!

In each of the ‘last rites’ I have used the wonderful centuries old ‘sending on’ prayer the Proficiscere (here in a shortened version) -    Go forth from this world, O Christian soul: in the love of God the Father who created you, in the mercy of Jesus Christ who redeemed you, in the power of the Holy Spirit who strengthens you. May the heavenly host sustain you and the company of heaven enfold you. In communion with all the faithful, may you dwell this day in peace. Amen.

The Bishop traditionally is the one who presides in the sacrament of confirmation to symbolize the Apostolic succession from the first Apostles to all bishops today.

This is a great symbol because it demonstrates how the sacrament of anointing of the sick is done

Symbols: A symbol of anointing of the sick is the sacred chrism oil in which the priest anoints the person and makes a sign of the cross on their forehead.

The Catechism explains, "This sacred anointing of the sick was instituted by Christ our Lord as a true and proper sacrament of the New Testament. It is alluded to indeed by Mark, but is recommended to the faithful and promulgated by James the apostle and brother of the Lord" (CCC 1511; Mark 6:13; Jas. 5:14-15).

Catholic Teaching- When the priest lays his hands on the sick person, it is a blessing. It is also a gesture representing the coming of the Holy Spirit. When the priest lays his hands on sick person, it represents what Jesus did to the sick people.

WHAT IS CONFIRMATION? Confirmation is the sacrament through which the Holy Spirit comes to us in a special way and enables us to profess our faith as strong and perfect Christians and soldiers of Jesus Christ. (+) John 16:7 {Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.}

confirmation connects to the real world because everything must eventually come to an end and confirmation is the end of initiation into the catholic church
