Confirmation is a deepening of the faith life of your son and she should not take this lightly and without realizing its significance in her future. Saints are selected for Confirmation because of what they are patrons of (., what is their area of specialty?) — not what their names are — so that this Saint can be a life-long friend and helper and teacher for your son. The Saint your son chooses will take the responsibility given to him or her very seriously. That Saint, through the presence of Christ in your son’s life, will want to become actively involved in your his life. This truly does affect a person’s future life to the extent that he is open to it, and even more than that, though he might not realize it unless he pays attention to it.
