Confirmed as a son of God
My oldest son, who, along with one of his friends, I prepared for this sacrament, was confirmed by Bishop Wester on the Vigil of Pentecost, 10 May 2008. This picture was taken by his godfather, a dear brother, Rob, immediately following the Mass. I am very proud and happy. It is always a privilege to stand next to Bishop Wester, hold the sacred chrism, and witness the joy of those who receive this vital, life-affirming sacrament.
While we are father and son by nature, by grace we are now fully brothers in Christ!
