Confirmation Prayer


(For Isabel on her Confirmation Day)

May the faith you confirm today
Be your key
To open the doors to....
HOPE, when all seems lost,
JOY, when despair consumes you,
LOVE, when hatred afflicts you, and
PEACE, when turmoil surrounds you.

Guard it well
And keep it close,
This precious key,
For when it is lost
All is lost.
But when it is found,
It will set you free
And always guide you
HOME.

    For my daughter Isabel's Confirmation, a very important day in our Catholic faith, I wrote her this poem and gave it to her along with a beautiful silver key on a chain. She wears it around her neck as a daily reminder of her commitment to her faith. (Report) Reply
