Saint Reflection

All 7th grade students will research and reflect on a holy individual of his or her choice:

    • A canonized saint within the Catholic Church
    • A person who is a candidate for canonization within the Catholic Church (“Blessed”, “Venerable”, or “Servant of God” before their name)
    • A well-known living or deceased Catholic witness (i.e. Pope Francis, Pedro Arrupe, etc)
    • Please do not write about a family member or a personal friend.

Please write on the following questions in the reflection:

    • Provide a brief summary of your person’s life.
    • Saints can be viewed as both patrons and companions. How do you relate to your person as a patron? How do you relate to your person as a companion?
    • ”For me, to be a saint means to be myself.” -Thomas Merton. How can Merton’s insight be applied to your own life?
    • How will your person be a model of spirituality and service to you throughout your preparation for Confirmation?

1-2 pages, legible 12 pt font. Written reflection will be submitted via email to Rebecca by TBA.
