I was Confirmed when I was 15 years old, that same year I did a visit to Mexico and stayed with a Mexican Family. I visited the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe twice and had such a strong devotion to her at that time that when I was Confirmed I took the name Juan Diego as my Confirmation Saint. However, in all honesty since being Confirmed a number of years ago I have not prayed to him or had much devotion to him.
I ordered myself a statue of him yesterday and intend to ask for his intercession more often. I know that nowadays not every country has this tradition of taking a Confirmation names. People were surprised that I took Juan Diego but anyway, has anyone else “neglected” their Confirmation Saints?
I suppose most people are extremely devoted to their Confirmation Saints. I love the Saints and have so many I am devoted to but I let my devoted to Juan Diego slip…
