Chrismation]]''''' is the [[sacrament]] by which a [[baptism|baptized]] person is granted the gift of the [[Holy Spirit]] through anointing with oil. As Baptism is a personal participation in the death and [[ Pascha| Resurrection]] of [[Jesus Christ|Christ]], so Chrismation is a personal participation in the coming of the Holy Spirit at [[ Pentecost]].
Chrismation is often considered the equivalent to Confirmation in the western practise. Although normally administered in conjunction with Baptism, in some cases chrismation alone may be used to receive [[convert]]s to Orthodoxy through the exercise of ' '[[economia]]''. The Sacrament of Chrismation can be observed in the New Testament: the [[Acts of the Apostles]] show us that a sort of Confirmation was going on even in the early Church.
