Confirmation: Strengthening the Gift of the Holy Spirit

Now, when the apostles, who were in Jerusalem, had heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John. And when they had arrived, they prayed for them, so that they might receive the Holy Spirit. For he had not as yet come to any of them, since they were only baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid their hands on them: and they received the Holy Spirit.
Acts 8:14-17

Confirmation: The Gift of the Holy Spirit


Yet truly, once they had believed Philip, who was evangelizing the kingdom of God, both men and women were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ... And now, seeing also the greatest signs and miracles being wrought, he was amazed and stupefied. Now when the Apostles who were in Jerusalem had heard that Samaria had received the Word of God, they sent Peter and John to them.
And when they had arrived, they prayed for them, so that they might receive the Holy Spirit.
Acts 8:12, 14-15
