Confirmation

Confirmation imprints upon the Christian’s soul an indelible mark which perfects the graces received at baptism. It is the same full outpouring of the Holy Spirit as was received by the apostles at Pentecost (CCC 1302), which gives those confirmed “the power to profess faith in Christ publicly and as it were officially” (CCC 1305; cf. Summa Theologiæ III.LXXII.V).

Confirmation, in the Latin Church, is usually conferred by the bishop—though other priests may be delegated in necessity—by anointing the candidate for confirmation with chrism on the forehead and by the laying on of the hands, and through the words: “Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit” (CCC 1300).

Requirements:

Candidates must:

  • have attained the age of reason,
  • profess the faith,
  • be in the state of grace,
  • have the intention of receiving the sacrament,
  • be prepared to assume the role of disciple and witness to Christ, both within the ecclesial community and in temporal affairs.
