    Wo parents need to note that when our kids are teens we need to help them have peer faith friendships . If we succeed here they are protected if not they are in danger. In our all intrusive and powerful anti Christian culture they are just too vulnerable at that age to be peer isolated faith wise. These days we parents and pastors succeed or fail our children depending on whether they have a good peer faith friend. Some Catholic nations are dramatically failing to pass on the faith to the next generation. We also need to stop falsely sacramentalising those tens who clearly reject the gospel. This misleads many as to what it means to be a Christian. There is a widespread practice of welcoming to Confirmation and accompanying Holy Communion many who do not profess the faith who reject Christ. Effectively this is lying about what it means to be a Christian and damages the Churches witness and mission. Thé task of stopping this is our most urgent first step as Church.
    We must follow up Confirmation with challenge and support. We cannot properly evangelise while we affectively lie so often with sacraments of initiation. So we need to talk with and consider candidates for Confirmation on an individual basis sponsors need o take part too.
