In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is”sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit” and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ.

The sacraments of the Eucharist, Reconciliation, Matrimony, and Anointing of the Sick can be received more than once. Confirmation, however, is one of the three sacraments that can be received validly only once.

Why is this the case? Because these three sacraments, Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Orders, leave an indelible mark on the soul. Each of these sacraments imparts the soul a specific character that will always remain.

So if we have all been confirmed and “Seal in the Holy Spirit,” would that mean we are turned from the Holy Spirit when we indulge in our addiction(s)?

What are your thoughts?
