Confirmation Preparation

The Spiritual Seal

"Confirmation reminds us of the Holy Spirit filling the Apostles at Pentacost. When we are confirmed, our initiation into Christ's body is complete and we are given a seal, and imprint, marked as the Father's for 'it is God who establishes us with you in Christ and has commissioned us; he has given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.'' -Catechism of the Catholic Church
