Confirmation: Strengthened by the Spirit, called to action

"Confirmation enriches the baptized with the strength of the Holy Spirit so that they can better witness to Christ in word and deed (CCC 1285). Anointed by the Holy Spirit at confirmation, Christians strengthen their bond with the Church and become better equipped to carry out the Church’s mission of love and service."

~ United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
