Confirmations in Guadalajara and Vancouver

At the further ends of North America, the Fraternity was graced with the presence of two greater prelates for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

His Grace, Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, visited the Fraternity parish of Holy Family in Vancouver British Columbia.  Archbishop Miller assured the young people that courage and bravery is needed to spread the Gospel message to a world that is often indifferent, if not hostile to our Christian faith, and stated: “The world today needs brave men and women who know their faith and can explain it to others; those who stand up for what they believe in. It takes courage to follow Jesus, because the pressures to compromise are enormous. It is so easy just to follow the crowd and do what ‘everybody else does.’ But that is not the way of Jesus.”
