The Catholic Church has never claimed that the work of the
Holy Spirit is limited exclusively to Baptism.
Confirmation is the Catholic Church's official prayer for the
Holy Spirit to empower a person to spread the gospel, to
live a fervent Christian life, and share more fully in the mission
and ministry of the Church.
Receiving the Holy Spirit in a new way, usually as the result
of earnest, expectant prayer, is what many Christians today
call being "baptized in the Holy Spirit."
Being "baptized in the Holy Spirit" is actually a "release" or
a "coming to consciousness" of the power of the Holy Spirit
who already has been given to the believer through the
sacraments of the Church.
