I am a Catholic. I do believe in the Holy Sacraments of the church. I remember during our elementary years, we were on grade six then if I am not mistaken; my classmates had the chance to be confirmed. Obviously, I did not join them. My grandmother did not allow me to not because she doesn’t believe on it but it’s about financial difficulty. We don’t have the amount required that time.
It was only three years ago after I gave birth to my son when I finally decided to have myself confirmed. And I guess I have made the right decision not only that I was able to receive a kind of personalized confirmation gifts but most specially that I have been blessed again and this time by the hands of a bishop.
I believe what’s important about having been confirmed is the ability for a person to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
