Adult Studies - Sent by the Spirit (Confirmation)

What does it mean to by Confirmed in the Catholic Church?

"If there was ever a time when the Sacrament of Confirmation needed to be explained carefully, that time is now.  All too many members of the Church neglect it altogether; and those who have received it or who plan to receive it, see it as something minor in their lives... There is a real need, then, for instruction on the nature, power, and dignity of this sacrament ... Confirmation must be restored to the reverence and devotion it deserves."        Catechism of the Council of Trent, II, 2.1 - 1566 AD

Sent by the Sprit:  The Sacrament of Confirmation explores and explains the Sacrament of Confirmation.
