Confirmation is also a formal Jewish ceremony to show that a roung person has completed religious studies.

We receive the message of faith in a deeper and more intensive manner with great emphasis given to the person of Jesus Christ, who asked the Father to give the Holy Spirit to the Church.
The prophets of the Old Testament foretold that God's Spiritwould rest upon the Messiah to sustain his mission. Their prophecy was fulfilled when Jesus theMessiah was conceived by the Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. The Holy Spirit descended on Jesus on theoccasion of his baptism by John. Jesus'entire mission occurred in communion with the Spirit. Before he died, Jesuspromised that the Spirit would be given to the Apostles and to the entireChurch. After his death, he was raisedby the Father in the power of the Spirit.
