[font=Times New Roman]My cousin Joey just made his confirmation last week and my father was his sponsor. He gave him at statue of Joseph, two prayer cards to Joseph and a medal. He also wrote him a letter about his faith and how Joseph plays a key role. I do not know that he would read a book, but that is more his personality. He really liked the gift my dad gave him.
Maybe you could find out which name he is taking and do something similar. In my cousin’s case he took his given name of Joseph.
Similarly, I was his sisters confirmation sponsor and she took the name Mary
Magdalene. I gave her a prayer card on Mary
Magdalene and a beautiful crucifix. In her thank you letter she gave me a cross for my car with a prayer that she had blessed by her priest. They have such a wonderfully spiritual family.
I think a spiritually enriching gift is much better than money anyday! The book about the Pope sounds live a great start.
