Why do we get Confirmed? And what is Confirmation?
Answered by Father Miguel Gonzalez, St. James Cathedral, Orlando, April 6, 2017.

We get confirmed because we are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit. This gift makes us aware that we have been strengthened by Christ to be His witnesses in the world. So Confirmation is one of the seven Sacraments of the Church, that helps us strengthen our relationship with God.
