In the early church, Confirmation was one sacrament with Baptism and was often performed by a priest because bishops had many responsibilities throughout their diocese. The practice in Confirmation of anointing with oil comes from the early church in the Old Testament when oil was a sign of abundance and used for cooking, cleansing, and light.
The Council of Trent decided that the Age of Discretion should be around 16 years old. The sacrament of Confirmation is performed according to the age of discretion because it's a conscious choice to live a life of Christ.
sacrament by which Catholics receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit, who gives them the increased ability to practice their Catholic faith in every aspect of their lives and to witness Christ in every situation
