The article explains the indication: “Emphasis should be given to the celebration of the word of God which begins the rite of Confirmation”. It also clarifies that “it is from the hearing of the word of God that the many-sided power of the Holy Spirit flows upon the Church and upon each one of the baptized and confirmed, and it is by this word that God’s will is manifest in the life of Christians”. God speaks to His people, reveals to them the mystery of salvation through the readings from the Sacred Scriptures. He directs His word in order to foster ever deeper union into His Covenant with us. This is the way in which Christ gathers His people and talks to them. He touches the consciences, purifies and heals them, shows His Power and the power of His activity (Jn 15:3). Each of the confirmed has been encouraged to undertake a daily road of truth, adoration and thanksgiving. It is the call to man to respond with the appropriate attitude to God’s activity towards him. Through the action of the Holy Spirit, He enables the faithful to live by the revealed Word daily.
