Catholic Confirmation Gifts For A Variety of Honorees

For many teenagers, Confirmation is a very important time in their lives but not just because they will get Catholic confirmation gifts.  Confirmation is the process by which a young person makes a commitment to the Catholic Church, to be devout and an active member.  This sacrament is set up to correspond to baptism, since most people are baptized when they are babies and do not have a choice which religion they belong to.  These gifts, then, are given to not only celebrate the occasion, but to welcome a young person into a new phase of their spiritual life, and support them as they grow further into their faith.

Perhaps the most common Catholic confirmation gifts are student packages of the New American Bible.  This version of the bible was put together to specifically correspond with Catholic masses, and the seasons by which the readings circulate.  This bible also contains books that are not in other versions.  Aside from that, though, giving a Bible is an effective way to provide positive reinforcement of the value of faithful devotion to God.  The newly confirmed can use this as a study tool to better understand the scripture, as well as an answer book for when they encounter many of life’s tribulations.

Rosaries are also popular Catholic confirmation gifts because, obviously, this form of meditation is integral to the Catholic Church.  As one of the only denominations that recognize the importance of Mary, the mother of Jesus, the rosary is a way to connect to Jesus through the focus on her.  As a prayer chain, you are able to learn several of the prayers that are important to Catholics, like the Our Father, Glory Be, The Apostle’s Creed, and, obviously, the Hail Mary.  It also teaches you the Sorrowful, Joyful, and Glorious Mysteries of Jesus, which describes the acts that he performed in his lifetime.

Patron saint medals also make for fitting Catholic confirmation gifts.  These medals celebrate the lives and deeds of important members of the Catholic Faith throughout history.  When a person gets confirmed into the church, they are likely to encounter more spiritual warfare, so you could give them a Saint Michael medal for instance, which offers protection, since he is the patron saint of the warrior.  Of course, he is the figure that cast Lucifer from Heaven, so his assignment of patronage makes perfect sense.  There are many other patron saints that you could give a young person according to their particular personality or hopes and dreams.

No matter what kind of Catholic confirmation gifts you are looking for, you are more likely to find it online.  Web stores have wider catalogs with more products than you will probably find at your local Christian book store.  They also typically offer better prices than you will find at a small shop.  There are many online retailers who are available on the internet twenty-four hours a day, so you can shop when it is convenient to you and ship your order directly to your home, or even to the church if necessary.
