The Sacrament of confirmation along with Baptism and Eucharist, complete the Sacraments of initiation and brings full membership in the church. The invocation of the Holy Spirit and the sacramental grace received fortifies the recipient in resisting temptation and truly living a Catholic Christian life. Also, one must be a fully initiated member of the church to function as a Lector, Eucharistic Minister at Mass or even to serve as a Baptismal godparent or Confirmation sponsor. The sacrament of confirmation offers profound spiritual and practical benefits.
