Celebration of the sacrament of confirmation
Languages of publication
The subject of this presentation is celebrating of the sacrament of confirmation. There are two canons only at the Code of Canon Law referring to this sacrament: 880 and the following. What is enclosed by the Legislator at the Code does not exhaust the whole matter, as at the canon # 2 of CCL there already appears an explicit reservation: “For the most part of the Code does not define the rites which are to be observed in celebrating liturgical actions”. That is why the basic second resources of this analysis are the norms included in Confirmation rite applied to the customs of the dioceses in Poland. What needs to be paid attention at in celebration of this sacrament is individual imposition of the hand with simultaneous words prescribed in the approved liturgical books and anointing with chrism on the forehead of the candidate.
