Can Saint Michael be my confirmation saint?

Can i choose saint michael the archangel as my saint for my confirmation?

Yes you can and it would be a wonderful choice. He is my hero and my patron Saint.

jromero, When I was baptized back in the middle ages we did not choose a ‘patron saint’; we simply chose a Christian name; actually, since we were children our parents chose the name for us.

I have not heard of choosing a patron saint for Confirmation.

And it brings something else to mind. Why are the three Archangels called “Saint.” They are spiritual beings. I am sure someone will be able to answer that for me.:confused:

But, I agree that Michael would be a wonderful choice for a Confirmation name. I pray the Chaplet to St. Michael daily.:thumbsup:
