A plea for confirmation and an explanation of the sacrament -- its power and responsibility -- an appeal for mature Christians and a ""grown-up"" laity that will see and accept their place in the life of the church. A book no Catholic (Roman or Anglo-) can fail to find helpful and enlightening whether they receive it as a confirmation gift or get it to give to a priest or layman. To those who feel the Catholic Church dominates a blind laity this book will be an eye-opener. The present Pope has stood for the common priesthood and led the way by his own extremely democratic actions urging in the advance of Catholic action the Catholic laymen to think, worship, work and lead shoulder to shoulder with their priests. The modern world in all its need is laid bare and the cure, spiritual rebirth through the action of the Holy Spirit, presented with power.
