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:

Elizabeth Taylor - Taming of the Shrew

Elizabeth Taylor passed away today. I'm old enough to remember when she and Richard Burton were on all the tabloids staring back at me when I went to the grocery store with my grandparents for the weekly stock up!

Taylor and Burton starred in a version of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. I remembered it as a kid and I watched it recently on VHS from the library.  It is very enjoyable and laugh-out-loud funny in places! If you have students in your homeschool (or even in regular school) you might enjoy watching this with them.

Elizabeth Taylor will surely be missed!
