Sacraments Presentation: Confirmation
Transcript of Sacraments Presentation: Confirmation
By: Andy Lampereur, PJ Schneider, and Daniel Patz
Are you ready to become an adult in the Catholic Church?
The Journey of Confirmation
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands (2 Timothy 1:6)
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit (John 20:22)
And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you (Mark 5:19)
This sacrament celebrates a person's coming of age in the Church
The word Confirmation means "Anointed"
It shows that we have great strength in the church, and we need to use that strength to help bring others to Christ
Symbols of Confirmation
Anointing with oil and the laying on of hands
These two symbols represent the renewal of our Baptismal Promises
The Holy Spirit strengthens these promises
The bishop says, "Be sealed with the Holy Spirit."
The Holy Spirit is a key component of this sacrament.
In treating the rite of Confirmation, it is fitting to consider the sign of anointing and what it signifies and imprints: a spiritual seal.
Anointing, in Biblical and other ancient symbolism, is rich in meaning: oil is a sign of abundance and joy; it cleanses (anointing before and after a bath) and limbers (the anointing of athletes and wrestlers); oil is a sign of healing, since it is soothing to bruises and wounds; and it makes radiant with beauty, health, and strength.
Anointing with oil has all these meanings in the sacramental life. the pre-baptismal anointing with the oil of catechumens signifies cleansing and strengthening; the anointing of the sick expresses healing and comfort. the post-baptismal anointing with sacred chrism in Confirmation and ordination is the sign of consecration. By Confirmation Christians, that is, those who are anointed, share more completely in the mission of Jesus Christ and the fullness of the Holy Spirit with which he is filled, so that their lives may give off "the aroma of Christ."104 (CCC #1293-1294)
