Understanding Confirmation

In order to select the right confirmation gift, letís take a look at the definition of confirmation.

Confirmation is a rite in many Christian Churches, Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox Churches, and a large portion of Anglicans, view it as a sacrament, which in the East is conferred on infants immediately after baptism, but in the West is usually administered later.

According to canon law for the Latin or Western Catholic Church, the sacrament is to be conferred on the faithful at about the age of discretion, generally taken at about 7 years old. But there are a number of Episcopals have set a later age, usually between 14 and 16 years of age as a general rule but will not deny a younger child that has been baptized, have the use of reason, are suitably instructed and are properly able to renew the baptismal promises.

In Protestant Churches, the rite tends to be seen rather as a mature statement of faith by an already baptised person, usually an adolescent, and thus as a rite of passage, which, though not as big a change as a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah, holds a similar meaning.

It is believed that confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace, it roots us more deeply to the divine, it unites us more firmly to Christ, it increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us, renders our bond with the Church and gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith by word an action as true witnesses of Christ, to confess the name of Christ boldly, and never to be ashamed of the Cross.
