Confirmation is the sacrament of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit whom Christ Jesus sent. Jesus instructed his Apostles that they will receive the power of the Holy Spirit and called upon the Apostles to be his witnesses to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8) At Pentecost, the Apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to spread the Word of God.

The rite of Confirmation is anointing the forehead with chrism, together with the laying on of the minister's hands and the words. "Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit." The Ā seven gifts of the Holy Spirit - wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord - are strengthenedĀ
