Like Baptism, the Sacrament of Confirmation places a permanent mark on our souls that can never be taken away. It’s the mark of God’s chosen ones. This mark protects us from the power of evil. It also brings out our unique talents and gifts. It does this by blessing us with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. We are called to use our unique talents to serve the Church as full, maturing members of the Body of Christ. Just as its name implies, Confirmation confirms in us the faith that God planted there when he first call us before Baptism.
Confirmation calls you to speak about your faith both in the Church and in your daily life.
