What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation (along with Baptism and Eucharist). While it is the end of initiation, Confirmation is never really meant to be an ending, but the start of something new. It is a kind of personal Pentecost, a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our hearts that makes us doers of the Word of God, not hearers only. Confirmation completes the good work that was begun in Baptism and that is continually strengthened in receiving the Eucharist.
