“To each individual, the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit …But one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing them to each person as he wishes” — 1 Cor 12:7,11
Confirmation is more than just an event. It is the final stage in an initiation, a fulfillment of one’s Baptism, the beginning of a life in Christ. It does not end one’s catechesis; it begins a new journey of personal accountability and exploration of the faith. It is not a personal choice of Catholicism since one’s parents chose to Baptism them; it is the fulfillment of their Baptism, because they were given to God on that date. It is not merely a notation in Church records; It is a personal, powerful and eternal mark upon one’s soul, a mark which brand’s them as God’s and seals them for Him. In Baptism, a person is given to God. In Confirmation, they begin His work. Are you ready?
