Each booklet in the Growing Faith Project
provides a complete treatment of Catholic teachings on its topic. The material is presented in plain English. Es disponible en español también. It is based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and has an Imprimatur.
This booklet summarizes articles 1285 thru 1321 of The Catechism of the Catholic Church and the main points include:
► Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith.
► In the East Confirmation is administered immediately after Baptism and is followed by participation in the Eucharist; this tradition highlights the unity of the three sacraments of Christian initiation.
► A candidate for Confirmation who has attained the age of reason must profess the faith, be in the state of grace, have the intention of receiving the sacrament, and be prepared to assume the role of disciple and witness to Christ, both within the ecclesial community and in temporal affairs.
► The essential rite of Confirmation is anointing the forehead of the baptized with sacred chrism (in the East other sense-organs as well), together with the laying on of the minister's hand and the words: Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit.
