A sacrament of initiation that unites more inti-
mately the baptized with the church, and enriched
him with a special strength from the Holy Spirit
(Read John 4:34; Acts 2:11;38; Romans 8:15), comprised by the
following gifts
(Read Isaiah 11:1-3)
: “wisdom”, under-
standing”
, knowledge”, counsel”, “fortitude”,
“piety and fear of God” 
(reverence, wonder ​ and awe
before the presence of God)
. The sacrament of confir-
mation is necessary to complete the baptismal
grace. With this sacrament, one commits much
more with Jesus Christ, to extend and defend the
faith with his words and deeds
(Read CCC 1285, 1262-
​1263, 1303
). Jesus Christ was conceived by the
Holy Spirit and the power of God the Father
(Read Luke 1:35). The Holy Spirit guided and enlight-
ened Jesus in all his walk
(Read John 3:34; CCC 1286).
The Holy Spirit rested upon Jesus at the moment
of his baptism
(Read Matthew 3:16-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22).
In the last supper, Jesus promised to send the
Holy Spirit to his disciples
(Read John 14:26). After his
resurrection, Jesus breathed the Holy Spirit to his
disciples
(Read John 20:22-23). In Pentecost, the
disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit  
(Read
Acts 2: 11)
and Peter said that when being baptized
we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit
(Read Acts 2:38;
CCC 1287)
. The fruit of the Spirit is Love (Read Gala-
tians 5: 16-17; 22-26)
. The biblical account that comes
closest to the Sacrament of Confirmation is the
outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Pentecost
(Read Acts 2:1-4).
