Confirmation--Confirmación

Ven Espíritu Santo

It is part of your vocation to shout the Gospel from the rooftops not by your words, but by your life.
- Bl. Charles de Foucauld

    Confirmation is the sacrament that completes Baptism; in it the gift of the Holy Spirit is bestowed upon us. Anyone who freely decides to live a life as God's child and asks for God's Spirit under the signs of the imposition of hands and anointing with Chrism receives the strength to witness to God's love and might in word and deed. He is now a full fledged, responsible member of the Catholic Church.

    La Confirmación es el  sacramento que completa  el Bautismo y en el que recibimos el don del Espíritu Santo. Quien opta libremente por una vida como hijo de Dios y bajo el signo de la imposición de las manos y la unción con el Crisma pide el Espíritu de Dios, recibe la fuerza de ser testigo del amor y del poder de Cristo con sus palabras y obras. Es entonces un miembro pleno y responsable de la Iglesia católica.

I am created to do or to be something for which no one else is created: I have a place in God's counsels, in God's world, which no one else has. Whether I be rich or poor, despised or esteemed by man, God knows me and calls me by my name.
- St. John Henry Newman
