I am my younger brother’s sponsor for his Confirmation. I asked him if he had thought about a Confirmation saint, and he said the Parish doesn’t allow candidates to choose a saint. I am somewhat baffled by this. It would make sense if the Parish said they weren’t required, but to forbid the children from choosing patrons seems…bizarre.
Should I encourage my younger brother to pray and find a patron saint for his Confirmation, regardless of what the parish says?
