Confirmation "You've got the keys."
Confirmation is a lot like driving. After preparation in the classroom and behind the wheel, the candidate is given a license to drive. The freedom and responsibility of 'having the keys' is a sign of adulthood. Turn the card around to see the Papal Keys with a Catechism selection from CCC 1309. It speaks to the spiritual maturity of the Confirmed person being awakened to the sense of belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ, the universal Church as well as the parish community. Size A7 card (5"x7") Original art by Blake Van Oosbree. Hot Rod Red envelope included.

Confirmation Warrior Princess
Original Water Color by Amie Kieffer. The model was inspired by St. Joan of Arc and The Lord of the Rings. The idea of a warrior princess theme was inspired by both the book Captivating by Stasi Eldridge and a homily where the priest summed up the Sacrament of Confirmation as Christ saying "I will be the sheild at your side." The card measures 5"x7" and comes with an envelope. The cover says "Confirmation - I am the sheild at your side." The inside quotes St .Joan of Arc "I am not afraid, I was born for this." The back of the card includes a selection from the Catholic Catechism paragraph 1296 "It is God...who has put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. This seal of the Holy Spirit marks our total belonging to Christ, our enrollment in his service for ever. As well as the promise of divine protection in the great eschatological trial.”
Dove of Fire
Confirmation Greeting card that combines the symbols of the Holy Spirit as both Fire and Dove. The Cover “I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled.”— Luke 12:49 The inside salutation is "May the Holy Spirit inflame your life with His transforming energy." The back of the card brings home the formative aspect of the card with CCC 696 "While water signifies birth and the fruitfulness of life given in the Holy Spirit, fire symbolizes the transforming energy of the Holy Spirit’s actions. The prayer of the prophet Elijah, who “arose like fire” and whose “word burned like a torch,” brought down fire from heaven on the sacrifice on Mount Carmel. This event was a “figure” of the fire of the one who transforms what he touches. John the Baptist, who goes “before the Lord in the spirit and power of Elijah,” proclaims Christ as the one who “will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.” Jesus will say of the Spirit: “I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled!” In the form of tongues “as of fire,” the Holy Spirit rests on the disciples on the morning of Pentecost and fills them with himself. The Spiritual tradition has retained this symbolism of fire as one of the most expressive images of the Holy Spirit’s actions. “Do not quench the Spirit.”
