Confirmation

Bishop Barron on Confirmation Names

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 31, 2018 .

One of the marks of the sacrament of Confirmation is that someone takes a new name. It’s true—and weird—that while an individual chooses the name of a saint, in a much more significant way the saint chooses that individual, drawing them into the power of his or her life and witness.

Confirmation is meant to set people on fire with the Holy Spirit, precisely so that they in turn can set the world on fire. Once again, the gifts that they receive are not for them.

Vitae Spiritualis Ianua

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 10, 2016 .

The first Sacrament one can receive in the Church, Baptism, defines our relationship with Christ. In it, we are reborn as part of his mystical body, and are gifted the grace of God's love. Baptism lays the foundation for every other Sacrament we are to receive, and inextricably links us with the Trinity.
