CC054: Restoring Confirmation to Its Original Order

This year, Bishop Wall announced that the Sacrament of Confirmation would be restored to its original order, to be given at the age of reason at around 7-8 years of age.

In this episode, he explains his reasons for the restoration, how the sacrament confers grace at a crucial period, and how Catholics and families should prepare to receive Confirmation.

“There’s this erroneous thinking…that when you were baptized as an infant, that somebody said yes for your faith, and now you’re saying yes for your faith. But that’s not true…as you grow up, as you live out your baptismal faith and you grow in wisdom and knowledge, you’re continually saying yes. You don’t wait until you’re 16 or 17 and then you say yes to that sacrament…you say yes to the sacrament when you go to Mass and participate in Mass, and you can do that at any age.”
