Celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation

“Through the Sacrament of Confirmation the Apostles themselves and the Bishops…have handed on to the baptized the special gift of the Holy Spirit, promised by Christ the Lord and poured out upon the Apostles at Pentecost. With its help, initiation in the Christian life is so brought to completion that the faithful, strengthened by heavenly power, go forth as true witnesses of Christ in word and example, and are bound more closely to the Church. So that ‘the intimate connection of this Sacrament within the whole of Christian Initiation’ might more clearly be set forth, the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council decreed that the Rite of Confirmation was to be revised.” (DECREE on the revised Order of Confirmation, 22 August 1971, Prot. n. 800/71)
