Module 2: The Gift of Happiness

In this module, sponsors explore how choosing the path of true happiness takes courage, strength, and resolve. They discover that the Gifts of the Spirit are actually foundations for a life of happiness. It takes courage to “do what’s right” in life, and this courage is one of the gifts, one of the graces, that God bestows on us.

Thus in the Sacrament of Confirmation, we are anointed with sacred oil, called Chrism, and in the anointing we are “sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit.” Sponsors, like the young people, are led through a discernment of the Gifts of the Spirit and personal reflection on the need for the gifts in their own lives.
