The Sacrament of Confirmation is the Sacrament in the Catholic Church by which “the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed”(CCC 1285).
In order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation worthily, you must be in a state of grace and know well the chief truths of our religion. Though every Sacrament is a gift from God, we must do our part to receive it in the proper disposition.
