Am I reaching them?
Still they ask why do I have to come here? My answer to gather the information required to make an informed decision about Confirmation. This sacrament is their choice.
Their answers: One student comes because their grandfather will buy them a car after receiving the sacrament. Others complain their parents are forcing them. Or that they will never be allowed in their grandparent's house again if they are not confirmed. Some, not all, seem bored no matter what we do. Most try at one point or another.
It truly is in God's hands. Something has to ignite that spark. Fan the flames.
