Confirmation is important because “it brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace; … it increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us; … it gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith by word and action”; and it helps us live out our vocations as husbands and wives, nuns and priests. Catechism 1303
