The three parishes in Cheyenne are celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation this week. Last night it was at St. Joseph's, tonight at Holy Trinity, and tomorrow evening is at the Cathedral of St. Mary. Many of our young people are being sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit. Change is in the air for each of them.
The power of the Holy Spirit in our lives is not something to be taken lightly. If we are walking in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father, and the power, communion, and fellowship of the Holy Spirit we should be witnessing definitive changes in our lives. If the gifts of the Holy Spirit are at work in us, the fruits of the Spirit should be readily visible to all. Are we growing in patience and kindness? Are we maturing as Christians? Is change happening in our lives?
