    I'm 13 & getting ready to be confirmed, and I'm pretty sure I'll choose this saint too. I love drawing, and when I learned that St. Catherine was also a violinist like me, I just found her story perfect.

    I'm 19 years old and was confirmed a few years ago. I chose Catherine as my saint name because of my love of art. She has a beautiful story.

    Haha that's very funny! I chose her for my confirmation too. I guess she's an interesting person to thirteen year olds. ;-)

    I think she is a really cool saint and I want to choose her for my Confirmation, but I can't figure out why she is the patron saint of artists. I love art and that's one of the reasons I am choosing her. Can anyone help me?

    One of the many wonderful things about our Catholic faith is that it can help us to find common ground with other people. Catharine of Bologna has a message for Rebecca and for Carly, even though their life stories are probably pretty different. Our faith connects us with others; when we can find ourselves in them, we become more able to find compassion in ourselves.

    I am choosing this for my Confirmation name too! I am also an artist, and a lot of her personality is a lot like mine!

    I'm choosing Cathrine of Bologna as my saint for confirmation too. I am an artist and I think she and I have a lot in common. I'm a perfectionist too. :)
