'On this day that you are confirmed, I want you to remember that Jesus will never ever depart from you. Whatever you go through in life, whatever you experience, He will always walk beside you and He will always be there to give you His guidance. And always remember this truth which is true of all of us that we move from being simply observers to being deeper participants in the life of God.'

"The pastures that this good shepherd has prepared for you, in which he has settled you for you to take your fill, are not various kinds of grasses and green things, among which some are sweet to the taste, some extremely bitter, which as the seasons succeed one another are sometimes there and sometimes not. Your pastures are the words of God and his commandments, and they have all been sown as sweet grasses. These pastures had been tasted by that man who said to God, 'How sweet are your words to my palate, more so than honey and the honeycomb in my mouth!'  ~ St. Augustine of Hippo, 354-430 A.D. (excerpt from Sermon 366,3,1)
