A Perfect Gift for Those Receiving the Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Across the Christian world, Confirmation is one of the most momentous occasions in a spiritual journey, a culmination of progress that began at baptism and the point at which the faithful, having attained the age of reason, can knowingly look to God and assent to His call.
Rooted in the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles at Pentecost, Confirmation places us within the wisdom of the Holy Spirit. As James writes, “Wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” It is this wisdom (rather than simple knowledge) that will empower and energize the confirmand for his or her entire life.
A Gift Rooted in Scripture – Acts 2:1-4
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
