The Spirit gives us the strength to follow God’s Law
Everyone who has received the sacrament of confirmation has received the gift of the Holy Spirit, who guides them and gives them the strength to follow God's will.
Every one of us has the Spirit within us. The Spirit is in our heart, our soul. The apostles received the Holy Spirit on Pentecost and they, like their successors, the world's bishops, were granted the power to invoke the Holy Spirit upon those who have been baptized.
Jesus gave his disciples a truly great mission, to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world.
After one is reborn to divine life in baptism, the next step is to live like true children of God, conforming oneself to Christ and sharing in the mission of the church.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is about confirming the grace of baptism and anointing people with the Holy Spirit to bear witness to Christ in the world.
How do we see if we have received the gift of the Spirit? If we fulfil the works of the Spirit, if we speak with words taught by the Spirit.
Christian witness consists of doing only and everything that the Spirit of Christ asks us while granting us the strength to do it.
