Anointed for a Purpose


The scandal of Christian faith is that we are anointed, each of us, to actually stand in the place of Jesus. What does this mean for our lives and for our world? Thirteen chapters address “Becoming anointed” and “Living the anointed life.” Author Mary Sharon Moore writes with compelling clarity, with her signature encouragement and insight.

Ideal for new and returning Catholics, parents of Confirmation youth, adults completing initiation, adult faith development.

“In truth, we do seek to discern God’s calling, and to come to grips with the nature of God’s calling,” writes Mary Sharon Moore in the introduction to her book Anointed for a Purpose, “not because we understand what we seek but because we are impelled by the Holy Spirit.”

She adds, “We have been everlastingly sealed in this same Spirit to discern and express the ways in which Jesus, the risen Lord, continues his creative, encouraging, healing, redeeming work in our twenty-first century world. He is not yet finished with this work, and therefore neither are we.”

With her hallmark passion to awaken laity to the power of their anointing for the good of the world they touch, Mary Sharon Moore breaks open in fresh ways the power of the anointing in Baptism and Confirmation, an anointing which grows deeper as we take our life and our relationship with Jesus and his holy Spirit more seriously.

Anointed for a Purpose offers a clarifying depth of understanding of Confirmation and the whole of sacramental life for our world today.
