Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation." The sacrament of Confirmation completes the graces received in Baptism. The baptized are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.
Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1285
The rite includes calling on the Holy Spirit, laying on of hands, and being sealed with the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, understanding, knowledge, courage, reverence, strength, and wonder and awe. By Confirmation Catholic Christians are empowered for the ministry of living one's belief in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
