I’m currently in RCIA at my local parish and will be confirmed into the Church this Easter Vigil. Today we had the Rite of Election with our Bishop. I’ve been contemplating Saints whom I’d like to use as my Confirmation name. I’m particularly drawn to soon-to-be Saint John Paul II - for many reasons; I was born in the same year he was elected Pope ('78), and his life resonates strongly with me.
So, since the Easter Vigil will be before he’s cannonized, is it ok to use his name as my patron Saint?
