By the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285)

The Sacrament of Confirmation is the second of the three sacraments of initiation. Confirmation perfects our baptism and brings us the graces of the Holy Spirit that were granted to the Apostles on Pentecost Sunday.

If Baptism is the sacrament of re-birth to a new and supernatural life, Confirmation is the sacrament of maturity and coming of age. Confirmation is a sacrament of empowerment.

It gives the strength to follow Jesus and to become involved in the mission which Jesus left to the Church. This Sacrament impresses an indelible character.

“I have baptised you with water; he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.” Mark 13:11
