The Sacrament of Confirmation

Through this second Sacrament of Initiation, the grace given in Baptism is strengthened and deepened. It is conferred by anointing the recipient with the Oil of Sacred Chrism by the Bishop who pronounces the sacramental words proper to this rite. These words refer to a gift of the Holy Spirit that marks the recipient with a seal as a soldier of Christ.
