What Does Being Confirmed Mean?

Answer

In a Christian setting, confirmation is seen as indelibly sealing the people to the Holy Ghost, hence its name, Sacrament of the Seal. It imparts to people the 7 Gifts of the Holy Ghost which include; wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord. The Sacrament may only be received by one who is baptized, preferably while he is in a state of grace (i.e., not in a state of mortal sin).

In the Christian church, confirmation means that you have chosen to commit to life as a Christian. The confirmation ceremony usually happens after taking confirmation classes which you are taught about the Holy Communion and what it means. During the ceremony, the young Christian makes promises before God about choosing to live as a Christian.
