I am currently going through my journey with the RCIA group as we continue to instruct and offer an experience of Christ to the catechumens, by way of my presentation to them in the area of the sacraments. This evening, I have the privilege to share with them the Sacrament of Confirmation.
As baptised Catholics, you may say that all these are old hat to us already and shouldn't be too much of a problem following through with them. Strangely though, this isn't usually the case. For most of us who have been baptised as infants, much of the catechising in this area has either been done poorly or what was learned then has been relegated to the twilight zone of forgotten things. Nonetheless, the grace, experience and power of the sacraments continue to impact upon the persons who are seeking baptism and those who have had a rebound in their faith life.
This brings me to an incident which tickled my funnybone and also serves as a pointed reminder to all in the faith. This was seen on a van which belongs to a signboard making shop. It's spiel is, of course, very business like and to the point. It also serves to shows us a 'sign' to take our faith seriously:
'A business without a sign is a sign of no business'
I can't argue with that!
