"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Confirmation enriches the baptized with the Holy Spirit, binding them more perfectly to the Church, and strengthening them in their witness to Christ. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation is conferred through anointing with chrism and the laying on of hands.
