In this post I would like to show you the traditional and modern forms of the Sacrament of Confirmation. First of all, here is a video of the Traditional Rite of Confirmation adminstered in Oregon (2010) by Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerias, SSPX:
As you can see here, the bishop is being received while the hymn Veni Creator Spiritus is being sung. He then gives a real theological sermon on the sacrament. There is no Mass in this case, but often times the bishop will offer a Pontifical Votive Mass of the Holy Ghost, the parish priest will offer the Mass of the day, or there will be Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
