The salt of the earth and the light of the world

The cathedral chapter thomas teuchgraber, who was born in lichtenfels and grew up in staffelstein, gave the consecration in the "heilige familie" parish church in the context of a festive service with concelebration of pastor roland neher of the parish "our dear lady, pastor george thottankara of the "holy family" parish and the islinger pastor henryk chelkowski 56 young people of the pastoral area bernhard von clervaux the sacrament of confirmation. The confirmands had been prepared for this important event in their lives over the course of half a year by pastoral advisor thomas reich, who also provided musical accompaniment for the service with the band unikat.
Teuchgraber spoke in his sermon about the spirit of god that should descend on the confirmands through the laying on of hands and the anointing with chrisam, so that they can be salt of the earth and light of the world according to the motto of the confirmation preparation. The anointing and thus also the confirmation should not only be a simple event, it should rather get under the skin, just as jesus once addressed and impressed his young people, so that they got under their skin and followed him.
The clergyman also expressed the hope that the sponsors would not only stand behind the young people during confirmation, but that they would also support them later in life.
