Reflection Paper Question on The Saints-due December 7, 2014 

Reflect on your own life. What are you good at (this could be something you have noticed or someone else has noticed in you)? How do you plan on nurturing this gift? How can God help you share this gift and how can you use it to glorify God? Consider the traditional Catholic saints. What saint’s story speaks to you (you can use one Mrs. Spillman spoke about or research on your own)? How does this saint challenge you?

Think about what it’s like for you to be a member of the Catholic Church. What are some challenges to living a life directed toward others, keeping Christ at the center of your life? What are some blessings? How will getting Confirmed inspire you to live as a full member of the Church?
