My brother is going to be baptized and confirmed into the Church this Easter. I would really like to send him something to show my support of him, since I can’t attend the ceremony. (It’s across the country.) We grew up in an athiest family and my parents, while not hostile about his newfound religious beliefs, are not especially excited about this either… and probably won’t think to congratulate him.
I am not Catholic (though I may be headed in the same direction) so I don’t what would be appropriate.
What is something that a new Catholic should have upon confirmation? How about a good book for him to read? His wife is Catholic, so he has access to the basics like Bible and catechism.
Thank you in advance for your recommendations.
