Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received.

Today is the Feast of the Guardian Angels. I just think this is such a special day at the end of a wonderful week of Holy Feasts! I've asked all of my children to remember their Guardian Angels today - and don't make them work too hard today!!

We found out this week that we have a new Guardian Angel living at our house. This Blessed Creature may only live with us a few more days, a couple of more months or perhaps 18 years, but we welcome this Guardian Dear sent to us by God to watch over and protect our new blessing.

Remember to thank your Guardian Angel today for all of their prayers and guidance.
