Through Confirmation, we are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ.
What is confirmation?
Confirmation strengthens the grace of Baptism and commits the baptized to become witnesses of Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith. Christ himself declared that he was marked with his Father's seal. Christians are also marked with a seal: "It is God who establishes us with you in Christ and has commissioned us; he has put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee." This seal of the Holy Spirit marks our total belonging to Christ, our enrollment in his service for ever, as well as the promise of divine protection in the great eschatological trial. (CCC 1296) Through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the baptized continue on the path of initiation and are perfectly bond to the Church.
