Several years after receiving First Holy Communion, a Catholic receives the Sacrament of Confirmation, so called because the Holy Spirit confirms or strengthens the gifts given to us at Baptism. Just as the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary at Pentecost in the form of tongues of fire, at Confirmation, the Holy Spirit is invoked and descends upon the person confirmed who is strengthened with supernatural graces.

Just as the baptized Catholic iscatholic-milagros-books---cards-greeting-cards-confirmation-cards cogi given godparents at baptism who should be models of the faith, so too, the Catholic to be confirmed selects a sponsor for Confirmation. The young person not only picks a sponsor who will be a role model, but also selects a new name, the name of a saint who will be a heavenly role model. The bishop is the usual minister of the sacrament.

A symbol associated with the Sacrament of Confirmation is the color red, the color of the vestments worn by the bishop and the color associated with the red tongues of fire on Pentecost. Another symbol is the dove representing the Holy Spirit. You will find many beautiful gifts for Confirmation bearing these symbols. A medal of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove is excellent. A ruby red rosary is another traditional choice.

May the newly confirmed Catholic, with each encounter with your thoughtful gift, be reminded to seek the strength and protection of the Holy Spirit, that is only a prayer away.
