Confirmation

Confirmation / Confirmación

Confirmation is a Catholic sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. Like Baptism and Eucharist, it is a Sacrament of Initiation for Catholics and a Sacrament of faith in God's fidelity to us.

La Confirmación es el sacramento en el cual el cristiano maduro corrobora su fe y su voluntad de permanecer en la Iglesia haciendo uso de sus regalos bautismales. Como el Bautismo y la Eucaristía, es un sacramento de iniciación para católicos y un sacramento de fe en la fidelidad de Dios hacia nosotros.
