Pope Francis 

Pauline Books & Media 



A collection of the Pope's thoughts on the gifts of the Holy Spirit especially for Confirmation

About this Book:

Confirmation is an important milestone in the life of every believer. If baptism is the sacrament of rebirth into a new and supernatural life, confirmation is the sacrament of maturity and coming of age. This confirmation in the power of the Holy Spirit leading to a firm profession of faith has always been the particular effect that Catholic tradition has ascribed to the sacrament. Pope Francis has spoken frequently about confirmation and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This volume, developed with young people in mind, is a collection of the Pope's encouraging words to us on the gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. Compiler Jaymie Stuart Wolfe has added a foreword and a section of prayers that include the Holy Spirit in Scripture, praying with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Veni Sancte Spiritus. Designed to engage the young and foster a life-giving faith, Anointed makes the perfect gift for all those celebrating or preparing for the sacrament of confirmation.

Features & Benefits:

  • Introduction by Pope Francis
  • Includes teachings from the Holy Father that address gifts of the Holy Spirit given to the confirmand
  • Each teaching concludes with a Scripture passage and a prayer
  • Youthful design makes text readable and engaging

About the Author:

Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected the 266th pope of the Roman Catholic Church in March 2013, becoming Pope Francis. He is the first pope from the Americas. His tenure has been characterized by humility and outspoken support of the world's poor and marginalized people, and he has been involved actively in areas of political diplomacy and environmental advocacy.

This beautiful, new, hardbound book form Pauline Press is going to become my go-to Confirmation gift. Filled with beautiful minimalist graphics representing the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as well as interesting typography and photographs, this little book packs in a lot visually. It is also filled with snippets of wisdom related to each of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit pulled from Pope Francis teachings. The short pieces from Pope Francis lend themselves perfectly to discussion or individual reflection. The book also includes prayers, Scripture verses, and more. I plan to use this in my classroom prayer space when we are studying the Sacrament of Confirmation, but could see it being used for prayer or reflection in a Confirmation class or in the home of a student preparing for Confirmation. Because of the modern design, there are some blank spaces on the pages introducing each new Gift of the Holy Spirit. I cant help but think that Anointed would also make a great gift book for a Confirmand. I would have parents, sponsors, catechists, pastor, etc. write a special message to the Confirmand throughout the book. It also could be set out at a Confirmation celebration for guests to write in, making it not only a keepsake but also a tool for future prayer. Its eye catching cover would help entice those students to return to Pope Francis wisdom time and time again. Pauline Media provided me with a copy of Anointed, Gifts of the Holy Spirit in exchange for an honest review.
