Confirmation is the sacrament in which the Holy Spirit comes to us in a special way to join us more closely to Jesus and His church and to seal and strengthen us as Christ’s witnesses.

The effects of Confirmation are:

  • An increase of sanctifying grace
  • The gift of a special sacramental grace
  • The imprint of a lasting character on the soul

Sacrament of Confirmation - Bishop Robert Barron

The Holy Spirit is at work in our lives through the Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit:

  • Fruits of the Holy Spirit: charity, generosity, joy, gentleness, peace, faithfulness, patience, modesty, kindness, self-control, goodness, chastity
  • Gifts of the Holy Spirit:
    • Wisdom: helps us judge what is important, meaningful, purposeful, etc.
    • Understanding: to know something is different from truly understanding it. I can know a lot of facts about someone, but that is different from truly understanding that person.
    • Counsel: helps us differentiate between right and wrong.
    • Fortitude: courage and endurance.
    • Knowledge: helps us to know God.
    • Piety: proper reverence for God, helps us obey God out of love.
    • Fear of the Lord: proper disdain for sin and awe of God’s goodness and love.
