“I was raised Evangelical and just recently started looking, with an open mind, into the Catholic Church. You guys have been instrumental in my leaning more and more towards coming home to the Catholic Church.”
If I was confirmed at a time when I didn't believe in God, may I receive a second confirmation?
Full QuestionI was confirmed at the age of 13. At the time I considered myself an atheist, and I was not receptive to the sacrament. I only recently returned to the Catholic faith. Is there any possibility that I could receive a second chance at confirmation?

The first Christians, like the Jews before them, were fiercely monotheistic, willing to die horrible martyrs’ deaths in the Coliseum—being slain by gladiators, devoured by wild animals, crucified, or tied to a stake and turned into human torches—rather than concede the existence of any other gods. The first Christians took God at his word and were willing to stake even their lives on the certainty that there is only one God.
