Information, preparation and gift ideas for Confirmation

Las cosas más importantes para la Confirmación

En su discurso de despedida, Jesús consuela a sus discípulos y les promete que no los dejará solos:

"Pero el Consejero, el Espíritu Santo que el Padre enviará en mi nombre, les enseñará y recordará todo lo que les dije." (Juan 14:26)

Durante la confirmación, los candidatos reciben la fuerza y el poder del Espíritu Santo. Esto sucede a través de la unción con el aceite crismal y la imposición de manos. Con el Espíritu Santo a su lado, se fortalecen (la confirmatio en latín) para ser testigos de Cristo en el mundo. Él da consuelo, esperanza, inspiración y paz. Con este sacramento confiesan que quieren pertenecer a Jesús y a su Iglesia.

Confirmation - FAQ

How can I prepare for Confirmation?

4 Steps—the Training Plan

Stay with the course
Don’t miss a single session of your Confirmation course! After all, you wouldn’t miss a training session if you wanted to complete the New York Marathon, would you?
Try to stay close to God
Go to Holy Mass every Sunday! Don’t miss. Ever. Come rain, come shine. Whether you had a party the night before, or need your brunch on Sunday morning. Holy Mass is a date with God. Unless you are very sick, that’s something you don’t miss.
Talk to God
The bedside rule. That is: in the morning don’t go beyond the bedside without saying morning prayers; and at night time don’t go beyond the bedside without saying your night-time prayers.
Listen to God’s Word
The Bible is a bit like a rather long letter from God to you. Try and read a little of it regularly, perhaps during your vacation. It’s best to start with the New Testament, with the Gospels. Try and understand what God is saying to you through his Word.
