Confirmation is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit which completes the baptismal grace and inserts the believer more fully into the Church's mission. The prefiguring of confirmation in salvation history. Jesus' promise of the Holy Spirit and the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The celebration of confirmation: the laying on of hands and the anointing with chrism. The effects of confirmation. The seal of the Holy Spirit. Who can receive confirmation? The minister of confirmation.
