YDisciple - Confirmation

YDisciple: Confirmation is designed to follow a thorough catechesis using Creed (10 sessions) and Living the Creed (10 sessions).
Every year, millions of Catholics receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in their parishes. It is one of the three sacraments of initiation (CCC 1212) that bestows the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, and empowers Catholics to go and spread the Gospel to all the world. The Holy Spirit is powerful, and many great miracles and mighty works have been accomplished through him. When the Apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit, they became some of the most influential people in the world.

So why don't we see the same power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of so many Catholics today? Why do we not see the Church and the Gospel spread by the millions of Catholics who received the Sacrament of Confirmation? Could it be that, too often, Confirmation seems like a graduation or ending of faith formation? Or, is there a lack of understanding on the part of the Confirmandi of what is actually taking place in the Rite? Whatever the reason, it is the case that confirmed Catholics who have not been moved to mission are failing to cooperate with the grace of the Holy Spirit. YDisciple: Confirmation digs deep into the presence and power of the Holy Spirit throughout salvation history, how he works in our lives today, the powerful signs and symbols in the Rite of Confirmation, and our mission in the world as confirmed Catholics.
