Explain that their godparents made these responses when they were babies through the Sacrament of Confirmation conferred on them the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit, but they were never released because they were still children and did not understand how to use them. They will experience God during the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, but they must be open to invite Jesus into their lives. Take time to explain the GIFTS, especially the gift of tongues. Tell them not to reject some and choose, but to ask for all. Tell them not to be afraid, that it is o.k. if they do not receive the gift of tongues or whatever they ask for. They can ask the Lord for their hearts desire.
