(Prayer commemorating the Reception of Confirmation):

Thanks be unto Thee, O my God,

for all Thy infinite goodness, and, especially,

for the love Thou hast shown unto me at my Confirmation.

I Give Thee thanks that Thou didst then send down

Thy Holy Spirit unto my soul with all His gifts and graces.

May He take full possession of me for ever.

May His Divine unction cause my face to shine.

May His heavenly wisdom reign in my heart.

May His understanding enlighten my darkness.

May His counsel guide me.

May His knowledge instruct me.

May His piety make me fervent.

May His Divine fear keep me from all evil.

Drive from my soul, O Lord, all that may defile it.

Give me grace to be Thy faithful soldier,

that having fought the good fight of faith,

I may be brought to the crown of everlasting life,

through the merits of Thy dearly beloved Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ.



Confirm, O God, that which Thou hast wrought in us,

from Thy holy temple which is in Jerusalem.


Say the Credo and the Our Father (standing).
