Eight symbols of the holy spirit (ccc 694-701)\r\nwater - water signifies the action of the spirit in baptism. \r\nanointing - anointing is the sacramental sign of confirmation.\r\nfire - fire symbolizes the transforming energy of the spirit.\r\ncloud and light - in the new testament, the spirit overshadowed the virgin mary and during the transfiguration the spirit came in a cloud and overshadowed everyone (lk 9:34-35). at the ascension, the cloud took jesus from the disciples sight (acts 1:9).\r\nthe seal - the seal indicates the indelible effect of the spirit in baptism, confirmation, and holy orders.\r\nthe hand - in acts, the apostles bestow the spirit by the laying on of hands. \r\nthe finger - the spirit, the finger of the fathers right hand, writes on the tablets of human hearts (2 cor 3:3).\r\nthe dove - when christ came up from his baptismal bath, the spirit in the form of a dove remained upon him.
