“Ask it” Basket

Can the candidates use the name of a Blessed (i.e. Blessed Miguel Pro etc…) instead of a saint for their Confirmation name?

No. The Rite of Confirmation calls for a saint’s name and does not include the names of a Blessed nor the names of those mentioned in the Old Testament.


What about the use of an Archangel as a saint name?

There are only three Archangels which the church has declared as “Saints.” These are Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael and the candidate may only choose from these three.
