This graceful pewter Confirmation Pocket Piece is the perfect confirmation gift, to be treasured for life as a reminder of the joyful moment of assent that Confirmation represents. This scripturally-based medallion shows on the front the descent of the Holy Spirit, and on the back lists the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit (wisdom, knowledge, right judgment, wonder and awe, understanding, reverence, and courage).
This basis in scripture and theology ensures that whoever receives this as a confirmation gift or sacramental gift will be reminded not only of their own entry into the church, but also of the theological magnitude of that moment.
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 young person’s spiritual journey. It is the culmination of a 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 situates young people 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 provide the confirmand with fuel for his or her entire life. By the power of the Holy Spirit, the animating force behind so much of Christian zeal and activity on Earth, the young person is enveloped in all of the tradition, wisdom and love of the Christian community. This Confirmation Pendant reminds the recipient both of their own confirmation and of the hallowed sacred power behind this sacrament.
A Gift Rooted in Scripture
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. Acts 2:1-4
