“Confirmation perfects Baptism grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.
Confirmation, like Baptism, imprints a spiritual mark or indelible character on the Christian’s soul; for this reason one can receive this sacrament only once in one’s life. The essential rite of Confirmation is anointing the forehead of the baptized with sacred chrism (in the East other sense-organs as well), together with the laying on of the minister’s hand and the words:” Accipe sgnaculum doni Spiritus Sancti” (Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit).
