The effect of confirmation
 
The effect of Confirmation is that the Holy Spirit is imparted to give 
strength, just as He was given to the Apostles on the day of Pentecost. 
Thus, the Christian must boldly confess the name of Christ. The one who is 
confirmed is anointed on the forehead wherein is the seat of fear; so that 
he will not blush to confess either the name of Christ or especially the 
cross of Christ, which to the Jews was a scandal and to the pagans 
foolishness. For this reason he is signed with the sign of the cross.
