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."
What is Confirmation, anyway?
Confirmation is a sacrament, a particular sign of God’s grace, which gives us the strength to bravely witness to the Gospel and the truth of Jesus Christ. There are a lot of misconceptions about what Confirmation is and what it’s “for;” it’s important to key into the sacrament’s true purpose. Confirmation allows us to be strong, vibrant, joyful, and bold witnesses for Jesus Christ and His bride, the Church; to defend Jesus and the Church, and to orient our lives around God’s will.
