Confirmation

Confirmation

Confirmation is the second sacrament of Christian initiation. It is called Confirmation because it confirms and strengthens baptismal grace. Adults are usually confirmed and receive the Eucharist at the time of their baptism, but youth are mostly baptized in infancy, receive Communion when they are six or seven and are confirmed when they’re fourteen.

When Pentecost day came around, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from
heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting;
and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and cam to rest on the head of
each of them. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as
the Spirit gave them power to express themselves.
– Acts 2:1-4
