Hi, guys —
I recently (3 years ago) received the sacrament of Confirmation, but I have a problem:
At the time, I picked John Paul, who was recently canonized, to be my Confirmation saint. Years later, I did some research on the internet on John Paul II, and found out that the actual saint name, some Catholics called him, was St. John Paul the Great. I researched some more and found another saint name: St. John Paul II.
- Did I write down the correct saint name at Confirmation?
I am worried that I wrote down the wrong one, because John Paul could be Pope John Paul, who is not yet a saint.
Not to worry, you are fine; your confirmation Saint is John Paul II, which translates to all the aforementioned titles, excluding the first John Paul, whom you did not choose.
It does not matter which way you wrote it down, the intent was there and it is the same person regardless of how you title him.
