(For the manner of this consecration and for other details, historical and liturgical, see CHRISM.)

Effects Confirmation imparts A further consequence is the spiritual relationship which the person confirming and the sponsor contract with the recipient and with the recipient's parents.

The Eastern Church omits the imposition of hands and the prayer at the beginning, and accompanies the anointing with the words: "the sign [or seal ] of the gift of the Holy Ghost." These several actions symbolize the nature and purpose of the sacrament : the anointing signifies the strength given for the spiritual conflict; the balsam contained in the chrism, the fragrance of virtue and the good odor of Christ ; the sign of the cross on the forehead, the courage to confess Christ, before all men; the imposition of hands and the blow on the cheek, enrollment in the service of Christ which brings true peace to the soul. In such cases, however, the priest cannot wear pontifical vestments, and he is obliged to use chrism blessed by a Catholic bishop.
In the Greek Church, confirmation is given by simple priests without special delegation, and their ministration is accepted by the Western Church as valid.
