Confirmation

Confirmation, also known as Chrismation, is one of the seven sacraments through which We pass in the process of our religious upbringing. According to Catholic doctrine, in this sacrament We receive the Holy Spirit.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:

Confirmation
"Recall then that you have received the spiritual seal, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the Spirit of holy fear in God's presence. Guard what you have received. God the Father has marked you with his sign; Christ the Lord has confirmed you and has placed his pledge, the Spirit, in your heart."

Confirmation is based on Biblical precedent

"Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, who went down and prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for it had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit. Acts of the Apostles 8:14-17."
