The sacrament of confirmation is sometimes said to be a sacrament in search of a theology. Yet from the earliest days of Christianity, confirmation has been an integral part of the sacraments of initiation—along with baptism and Eucharist—marked with the gestures of anointing with oil and the laying on of hands.
In the Catholic Update Guide to Confirmation, readers will find the historical basis for the sacrament, as well as the theological underpinnings of what it means to be baptized into the Catholic faith.
The editors of Catholic Update have combed their bestselling issues to bring you the words of Carol Luebering, Thomas Richstatter, Rita Burns Senseman, and other popular authors on this topic.
