As the “O2” portal reminds us, Confirmation is a sacrament during which the person joining it chooses another name and patron. This choice is not always liked by priests who prepare young people for Confirmation. This was also the case here.

Confirmation

While the names given at baptism do not depend on us, but on our parents, we choose the names given to us at Confirmation ourselves. Importantly, when choosing this name for ourselves, we must adapt to the prevailing rules. However, priests are not always satisfied with their choice, even when we are dealing with a saint.

This was also the case with Antek, who said long before his confirmation that he would like to give himself original name and not often chosen by others. He decided that Saint Dyzma would be his patron.

The priest, hearing Antek's decision, was not particularly happy with this choice. The catechist felt disgusted with this decision and asked the boy to change the patron. The clergyman not only argued that there are many more beautiful and traditional names, but he openly added that he did not want “the confirmed person to bear a name symbolizing a thief”. Eventually, the boy, at the instigation of the clergyman, decided to change his name.

Saint Dismas in the Catholic Church is also referred to as the” Good Rogue “. It was to be one of the two men crucified together with Christ. It was he who, in the face of death, repented for his sins and heard from Christ the words “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise”.

What do you think of the priest's indignation?
