Books Written By Their Chosen Confirmation Saint
When your child gets confirmed, they choose a saint that they want to be like, as well as someone who can pray for them from heaven.
It is important to remind your children that that as members of the Church, we are never been alone! As St. Paul said, “We are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1). These witnesses are the saints who continually intercede for us and pray for us (CCC 956). When your child chooses a confirmation saint, they are actually choosing a special friend to intercede and pray for them in heaven as well as a person they can model their lives after while here on earth.
Once your child has taken interest in a specific saint, find a book written by that saint (is possible) or a book about that saint, minimally. My daughter chose Saint Teresa of Avila as her confirmation saint so we purchased The Collected Letters of St. Teresa of Avila.
