Confirmation

"Those who have been baptised continue on the path of Christian initiation through the sacrament of confirmation. In this way, they receive the Holy Spirit, conforming them more perfectly to Christ and strengthening them so that they may bear witness to Christ for the building up of his body in faith and love"

(Rite of Confirmation, nn. 1-2)

The Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit

  • The moral life of Christians is sustained by the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These are permanent dispositions which make man docile in following the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
  • The fruits of the Spirit are perfections that the Holy Spirit forms in us as the first fruits of eternal glory.
