Confirmation

"Confirmation is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine relationship, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds."  [CCC 1316]

"By the sacrament of Confirmation the individual is more perfectly bound to the Church and enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. By Confirmation Christians share more completely with the mission of Jesus Christ and the fullness of the Holy Spirit with which he is filled." [CCC 1285,1294]

Every baptized person can and should receive the sacrament of Confirmation. This sacrament is so closely united to Baptism and the Euchrarist that "the faithful are obliged to receive this sacrament at the appropriate time." While the usual age for Confirmation comes after the "age of discretion," any priest can confirm a child (even an infant) who is in danger of death." [CCC 1306, 1307]
