In Latin, confirmation means "confirmation" and "confirmation". In the confirmation service both meanings are taken up, on the one hand the confirmands experience by the laying on of hands and blessing (Einsegnung) the promise of God. His yes, which He has already given to the person being baptized, is affirmed and the young person is an integral part of the church community.
On the other hand, the confirmands say yes to God and the church. In the service, they are specifically asked about their own faith, which they confirm anew.
Since the confirmation is a very important step in the life of a believer, one should arrange the Congratulations to the confirmation also accordingly. The congratulations, sayings and poems should be personal and tailored to the confirmand. A saying or poem testifies to individuality and frames each greeting card and the associated congratulations, very impressive.
