The Sacrament of Confirmation
The Sacrament of Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace, it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation,
incorporate us more firmly into Christ.
The Sacrament strenghtens our bond with the Church, associates us more closely with Her Mission and helps us bear witness to the Christian faith in words and deeds.
(Catechism of the Catholic Church 1994 Reference 1316)
The Sacrament of Confirmation confers special gifts of the Holy Spirit upon the person being confirmed, just as such gifts were granted to the Apostles on Pentecost.
The sevents Gifts of the Holy Spirit are: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fear of the Lord, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety.
