The Sacrament of Confirmation

Jude Missa

When a person has been baptized, he or she can now receive the other Sacraments. One of those Sacraments is the Sacrament of Confirmation.

What is the Sacrament of Confirmation?
The Sacrament of Confirmation is where the Holy Spirit comes to us in a special way and enables us to profess our Faith as perfect and strong Christians and also as a soldier of our Lord Jesus Christ. It also brings us the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:17).
Who can administer the Confirmation?
The usual minister of this sacrament is the bishop. But the Holy See gives power to the missionary priests to administer this sacrament if there’s no bishop in the country or the parish church is unable to contact or invite a bishop for confirmation.
Who can receive the Sacrament of Confirmation?
A person who can receive this sacrament must be a Catholic and already received the sacrament of Baptism. Before receiving this sacrament, the person must be in a state of grace. In short, he or she must take the sacrament of confession first.
What are the effects of Confirmation?
1. Increase the sanctifying grace
2. It gives special sacramental grace and imprints a lasting character on the soul.
3. It increases our love of God and our neighbor.
4. It enlightens our understanding.
5. It strengthens our will and preserves our soul from sin.
6. It inclines our heart to virtue.
7. Helps us to live our faith loyally and profess it courageously.
