Before Jesus was put to death, He promised His followers that He would send His Spirit to comfort and strengthen them. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, we receive the Holy Spirit, through the anointing with oil and the laying on of hands by the bishop or a priest appointed by him.
When we receive this sacred seal we show that we belong to God. So it is with us when we receive the holy oil on our foreheads; we become part of the priesthood of all believers, witnesses to Christ and heirs to His throne.
