Confirmation Whats it All About?

Every year, thousands of young Catholics receive the powerful Sacrament of Confirmation. Although it is true that most Catholics could probably give a decent account of the significance of Baptism, Eucharist, Confession, Matrimony, Holy Orders, and the Anointing of the Sick, However, many might balk when asked to explain the meaning of Confirmation.

Fr. Bill Peckman (pastor of St. Clement Catholic Church in Bowling Green, Missouri) had to say to “confirmandi” (Candidates for Confirmation) in his parish about the Sacrament of Confirmation:

  • You’re not “graduating”: Confirmation is not graduation. It is not a merit badge we give you at the end of having jumped through the appropriate number of hoops.
  • It’s not about “taking ownership” of your faith.: Confirmation isn’t about you taking ownership of your faith. If we are asking you to take ownership of your faith at this juncture of your life, we have failed as a Church.
  • It’s about grace.: Confirmation is about the giving of the grace necessary to live the life of a Catholic, not just down the road, but right now.
  • The objective truth of God.: There is such a thing as subjective and objective truth. They are not interchangeable. The teachings of the Church on faith and morals are objective truth as they are revealed truth, having God, the source of all truth as their genesis.
