For those that aren't Catholic, knowing and understanding the different sacraments within Catholic religion can be a little daunting and confusing. This can also make buying Confirmations gifts difficult. How do you know what is suitable?
What is Confirmation?
"Those who have been Baptised continue on the path of Christian initiation through the sacrament of confirmation. In this way, they receive the Holy Spirit, conforming them more perfectly to Christ and strengthening them so that they may bear witness to Christ for the building up of his body in faith and love.” (Rite of Confirmation, nn. 1-2)
Catholics believe the Sacrament of Confirmation is the spiritual equivalent of the growth process on the physical level. It develops further on the base laid in Baptism and what was nourished in Holy Communion. It is one of the three sacraments in the process of initiation into the Catholic Church.
Those being Confirmed choose a special person in their life to guide them through the process of Confirmation, and to "take care that the confirmed person behaves as a true witness of Christ and faithfully fulfills the obligations inherent in this sacrament" (canon 892). These people are called a 'Sponsor', and being asked to be a sponsor should be seen as a great honour. Gifted Memories Faith Australia also has a great range of gifts for Sponsors.
During the process of Confirmation, those being Confirmed choose a saint as their spiritual guide, and it is often thought as an appropriate gift to give something with that Saint featured. Gifted Memories Faith has many Confirmation gifts, including a large range of saint gifts, jewellery, medals, candles, pocket tokens, rosary beads and more.
