Most beloved instructor, we bother you today in order to ask for a clarification of the following:

Our understanding of the Sacrament of Confirmation is very shallow - even after having read your article about it - we would thus like to ask for a clarification of the practical and conclusive implication of this sacrament.
We interpreted it as having a strong relation with working with baptism during puberty. But sadly this is not out case. Does this mean that we have failed in this sacrament? We also have a difficulty in seeing the difference between the Sacrament of Penance (which we understand as working with Lucifer) and that of Confirmation.

Thank you for your time sir and we apologize if we have been careless in the study of your article - but we cannot find the conclusive and practical implication of this Sacrament therein. Thank you in advance sir!
May God bless you and guide you on your road to the divine. With our sincere regards, a ignoramus student of yours.

Post Script: We read the following:
If we are transforming, transmuting the sexual energy, we are already performing baptism.

If we are meditating on our ego and fighting against temptations, we are performing the sacrament of penance.

If we are proving that penance, by changing, by facing lust, by facing desire, in our mind, renouncing that and changing, we are passing through the sacrament of confirmation.

Proof is found in our actions.

The most important form of Confirmation is in the internal worlds, when the initiate is measured by those who determine his or her process of initiation.

If your sexual organs are still working, then clearly they are not destroyed. Almost all human beings on this planet abuse their sexual organs in puberty. Yet, redemption is still possible.

Penance is to repent, to change (and to suffer the karma without complaining). Confirmation is to confirm that the repentance is real.

Confirmation is a ritual in which the student not only confirms the work they have done, but confirms that they intend to keep going.

Thank you sir.
Then how does the student prove this?
And also - if I may - if we did not transmute during puberty but instead fornicate does this mean that the sexual organs are destroyed?
So Penance is to work with Lucifer, seeing oneself for what one is, comprehending and transforming that and thus changing, while Confirmation is to prove that one is going to continue with the Sacrament of Penance?
