Accipe Signaculum Doni Spiritus Sancti: On the Sacrament of Confirmation and the New Translation of the Ritual
The newly-translated English edition of the Order of Confirmation is currently in publication, and goes into effect for the dioceses of the United States beginning Pentecost Sunday, May 15, 2016, and may be used before. This occasion grants us a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the sacrament itself fifty years after the Second Vatican Council, and forty-four years after the promulgation of its revised ritual.
