The Sacrament of Confirmation is bestowed on numerous children and adolescents during the weeks between Easter and Pentecost. And while each Sacrament reveals the transcendent, divine mystery of God’s own life—and for this reason is not entirely comprehensible—the Sacrament of Confirmation, along with its ritual celebration, brings a heightened sense of mystery—and misunderstanding. Knowledge isn’t everything—the smartest in the Church don’t necessarily receive more grace than others. Still, the more we know about Confirmation and its sacramental celebration, the more can we love it and benefit from the great graces it bestows. So: enjoy this issue’s Quiz on the sacrament of Confirmation and its liturgical celebration, and then go on to soak up its power in any celebrations you attend now or in the future.
