Confirmation Prostration

Looking for pictures of confirmation (nothing was good) for my last post I came across this picture from a Catholic confirmation.

This is not to be critical in any way, but can any of you good Catholics out there explain what they're doing? I'd greatly appreciate it.

ok, I'll try, we learned about this when john was getting confirmed (you could ask fr. tony at Nic's baptism, he's a cool guy to speak with) It is when an ordination candidate lies prostrate during the ceremony.
It's a sign of humility and of total self-donation to God. That is the best of my knowledge.
