old rite of confirmation

In the old rite of Confirmation- previous to the reforms following Vatican II- the Bishop used to give the newly-confirmed a “blow on the cheek”. This symbol was used to indicate that followers of Christ may have to suffer for Him.
This usually doesn’t happen currently but ya know, I would laugh if a Bishop ever just clocked someone. Imagine that symbol there.
