During the Rite of Confirmation the bishop and the priests who are administering the sacrament lay their hands upon those who are to be confirmed and say:
“All powerful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, by water and the Holy Spirit you freed your sons and daughters from sin and gave them new life.Send your Holy Spirit upon them to be their helper and guide. Give them the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence. Fill them with the spirit of wonder and awe in your presence. We ask this through Christ our Lord.”
It is here that 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit are listed. These 7 gifts “complete and perfect the virtues of those who receive them" (CCC 1831). Consider creating your own prayer cards for your family and friends to celebrate the Confirmation of a loved one. These beautiful prayer cards are ready for you to custom print with your own prayer on the back.
