Special grace


The sacrament of Confirmation gives us a special grace and a special power. Just as the “mark” or character of Baptism made us sharers with Christ in His role of priest, giving us the power to participate with Him in divine worship, so also the character of Confirmation makes us sharers with Christ in His role of prophet or teacher.


The Catechism’s section on Confirmation says that Confirmation is the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit.


Its effects are to:

Root us more deeply in divine filiation

(being children of God)

Unites us more firmly to Christ

Increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us

Strengthens our bond with the Church

Associates us more closely to her mission of bearing witness to Christ

Helps us and more strictly obliges us to spread and defend the faith by word and deed
