What is Confirmation?

This is what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: “Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the ‘sacraments of Christian initiation,’ whose unity must be safeguarded ... the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For ‘by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.’ ” - Catechism of the Catholic Church (Section 1285)

... and ...

“Confirmation, like every Sacrament, is not a work of human beings, but of God, in which He takes care of our lives to mold us in the image of his Son, to make us able to love like Him.” - Pope Francis
