"I am a convert to the Catholic Church and barely knew the basics about the faith. I have learned so much since I have been listening to Catholic Answers Live. Thank you for answering my questions and helping me better understand my faith."
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.
"The civil authority has been, ever from the days of Herod, the enemy of Christ. The question, now pending, is whether the Church shall admit to ministry those only who, according to the dictation of the civil power, are fit for the office."
