Last night at St. Francis Solanus Parish in Quincy, a 90 year old woman was confirmed by Bishop Paprocki. For her sponsor she chose a young man who is but a junior in high school.
The two are neighbors and when he was preparing to receive his First Communion, he asked his older neighbor if she would be his grandma; she accepted.
After these many years she returned the favor and asked him to be her sponsor for her confirmation. I know her sponsor to be a fine young man; she chose wisely.
